mars lander kits
Kits ARE only available from October thru March
As you can see, I'm pretty fond of the Mars Lander
I've created upscale kits in 3.9" (almost 1X), 1.6X and 2X sizes
Only kits for the 1.6X Mars Lander are still being made
the 3.9" and 2X have been discontinued.
These kits are made as close as possible to an exact upscale of the original Estes Mars Lander. Changes have been made to improve upon the original design and also to make the Lander a lot stronger.
The design allows for the rear of the Lander to be removed, allowing access to the legs for repairs and replacement.
There are many parts to this kit. It's for someone that's built rockets before - don't buy it for your 10-year-old's first rocket!
Here's some of what's included:
Complete written instructions with photos
Shrouds, tubes, braces, centering rings, launch lug
Nosecone and laser-cut parts (BMS)
Bulkheards, tubes and couplers
Motor retaining system Tom designed to be very small & use the screws that hold the read bulkhead in place
Fabric paint needed for raised detail on the shrouds - you'll find this is a nice touch!
Templates, decal sheet, shock cord, kevlar cord and more
Chutes (Recovery Techologies) - optional for all kits
