QUEST Model #1504


Bright, bold and rugged, the Astra III is one of our best selling rockets. Part of our QUICK KIT family it features a unique all molded plastic fin can assembly. It is a great kit with a one-piece molded fin unit. It requires a little more skill to assemble, but still goes together easy enough. In a group building session, Astra III can be built in about 45 minutes.
