It may go under the name of "Menace" but it is essentially a model of a cruise missile. Apparently, one of the marketing points of this rocket was that it could be finished in a wide variety of ways. Of course, that is true of any rocket but it was part of the selling points of this one. Unfortunately, this kit succumbed to "brittle bag" so I inventoried the parts. It is missing the motor tube but since that is just a piece of BT20, that should not be too much of an issue. The BT20 houses an 18mm motor and it recovers by parachute.

I am asking $15

This kit is offered for sale in an effort to liquidate my collection of kits and is being offered via cross postings on The Rocketry Forum and Ye Olde Rocket Forum. The price indicated is what I have determined by looking for evidence of similar sales but, admittedly, might reflect a poor judgement on my part. I'm just doing the best that I can. The price does NOT include shipping. Interested persons are invited to contact me via PM and I will calculate the shipping. Payment is expected by means of PayPal, Zelle or Venmo. My intention is to make shipments twice per week after confirming receipt of funds. I will try to give the most accurate descriptions I am able to provide and will happily answer any specific questions either by PM or within the post thread.

I'm trying to be fair and honor a "first come, first serve" precedence when dealing with inquiries. That invovles juggling messages I see while at work at the hospital coming from both TRF and YORF. That started out easy but got more complicated as there were more and more rockets listed. I made some mistakes and for that I am sorry.

I also don't mind holding rockets as you wait for more to become available. This does help with shipping costs and nobody has been more horrified than I over the current postal rates. That said, I am going to have to change one thing. I am only going to set aside "sold" rockets. I tried it the other way and a few times I was left in the lurch when others were interested in a rocket. That was only a mild annoyance. What I cannot tolerate is the mistakes that I made in selling something that had been promised. With my faulty memory and hectic schedule, the only way to prevent this when so many rockets are up for sale (with hundreds more to come) is to strictly segregate the sold stuff from the unsold stuff. A hold with an intent to buy now gets 24 hours, barring exigent circumstances, after that, it's back on the market.

Good catch! I have one on my mantle painted white and was considering getting this to do the camo version...thanks for helping to slow down my build queue! 😉
I don't know for sure if I got it yet 🤞
This is a perfect builders kit for me.
I'm thinking of a retro theme. Silver with rivets make it look steam powered.

Sorry to disappoint.

I actually thought that this one and the TriStar would languish on line for months but both seem to have set a record in speed of response. Both are currently pending.
