Someone got a great deal. I have been looking for an Archer kit for a few months now without any luck. I guess I will end up scratch building one.Held one of these kits in my hands last Saturday. Unopened. The silent auction opening bid was $30 and it went for $35.
Whoa- looking good there, is that a recent kit from Public Enemy or one you've had around awhile? I still have some decals to add to mine but am so busy building others now. Can't wait to see your final result!
According to the 1996 NCRbE catalog it is "patterned after a prototype ship-to-air missile being developed for NATO".Is the SA 14 Archer based upon a real prototype or is it just a figment (albeit and nice figment) of the NCR imagination?
Now that is a great looking rocket!Here's my completed NCR Archer, I used an Estes 29mm
Retainer, 36" Top Flight chute, and installed an
Ejection baffle in the lower tube about 8" down.
Awesome kit, very high quality components!
Still cant get the pic to stay vertical!
For those of you looking to go higher with this kit, MAC Performance Rocketry has a canvas phenolic version of this rocket available. It's a little taller to accommodate the AV bay, and comes with a 54mm mmt. It's not really listed in his kit line, but if you ask, he will build it. When I start building it, I'll do a thread.Here’s a quick snap I took of my SA-14 Archer. LOVE this kit!
