The Gnome is chrome at its hottest! Standing just a little over 10 inches tall with super shiny chrome and sapphire blue colors, this is one great looking, mini engine powered cloud chaser that can reach altitudes of well over 800 feet. Recovery is fast and reliable with its orange colored streamer for easy tracking after a super fast flight!

The Gnome is another in our series of beginner skill level kits and features a chrome wrapped body tube, a bright blue pre-colored one piece fin unit, nose cone and upper launch lug ring. The rocket takes about 30 minutes to build and is finished off with a colorful, easy to apply self-stick decal.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BUILD: Scissors, pencil, ruler, fine sandpaper, plastic cement, hobby knife, masking tape and clear tape. Tools, construction and finishing supplies not included.
