Is this just the model, or also the engine?
Asked by Harriet on 11th July 2019

This is just the rocket kit itself.

You will need engine, wadding, launch pad and controller, etc.

You may be better with a "launch set" if it's your first rocket as it includes most of the items required: https://wheelspinmodels.co.uk/c/201/
