I recently picked up the Polecat Aerospace 5.5" Honest John (M31) kit. As I was researching different paint schemes for it I came across a couple pics of the M50 HoJo. There are some distinct differences, shuch as the M50 is shorter and has different fins.

I am looking for information regarding the M50 for scale purposes. I would like to build the M50 to go with my M31, nothing like having both of them !

Can anyone direct my to a site where I can get accutare info on this rocket/missle, speciffically the fin deminision's

No, No, no...

I was talkin' 'bout me! Sheesh!

I can't wait to see pics of yours! I've always liked the Honest John, and this 'new' version makes me like it even more! :D

OK,

I think that everyone should have the Honest John M-31 & M-50 book end set, no matter what size they are
