Metallizer Kit Comes Together
BELVIDERE, IL – The Space Program in Training had been hoping to spend the day watching the Chicago Bears in the Super Bowl. Since that didn’t happen, they did the next best thing: they built a rocket.
As the game went to halftime, the Green Bay Packers seemed to be firmly in control. Bob began putting their new Estes Metallizer kit together at the kitchen table. As an E2X model, the rocket was done before the Pittsburgh Steelers were.
The Metallizer is a large rocket completely covered in silver. While it is the first of their new kits to be completely ready to go, Bob says it may be awhile before it actually flies.
“Finding a silver rocket in an overcast sky or in the snow would be difficult,” he said. “We’ll probably wait until spring to launch it.”
