Big Bertha is an Estes' original! This burly, beautiful bruiser is a design classic! She's an all around Estes favourite that has truly withstood the test of time. Over the decades, Big Bertha has been most modellers' first big build. While standing on its massive fins, this oversize rocket checks in at an impressive 610mm tall!

A slow, realistic take-off sees Big Bertha launch to an altitude of over 500 feet before her decent by included 46cm preassembled parachute. Comprised of quality Estes body tubes, laser cut wood fins, moulded plastic nose cone and easy to apply self-adhesive decals, Big Bertha makes for an afternoon of modelling fun before her journey to the launch pad, and immortality!

Big Bertha requires a launch system; (launch controller and launch pad), rocket motors, igniters and recovery wadding to operate.
