What a classic! That's what you'll get with the Estes U.S. Army Patriot M-104 rocket that dominated the skies over Iraq. This 1:10 scale model rocket of the desert hero and mother of all air defense missiles is based on the U.S. Army's M-104 surface-air missile.

This Desert Storm Veteran features a top notch, two piece body tube, laser cut balsa fins, molded plastic nose cone and genuine-looking self-stick decals. The U.S. Army Patriot M-104, a Skill Level 1 kit, is the best kit to build for your first scale model rocket. It's easy to build and can be finished in a morning or afternoon. We have included a special Operation Enduring Freedom sticker that you can apply to this historical rocket. This classic scale model can fly 600 feet (183 m) high on standard Estes engines and recovers with a 12 inch (30 cm) preassembled parachute. Don't have this one? Get it! It's a scale ARMY classic that every rocketeer should have in his rocket arsenal.
