The Baby Bertha is a half-sized version of one of Estes’ most popular rockets, the Big Bertha. The Baby Bertha stands just 13 inches making it an ideal Intermediate building experience. High performance and easy to build is this model rocket.
The Estes Baby Bertha requires assembly and can be built and finished in just a few hours. You can paint it like the package or create your own Go Wild design! The kit features the distinctive looking laser cut wood fins, a blow molded nose cone and easy to apply self-stick decals. When powered with Estes standard model rocket engines, it can streak to over 575 feet and is easily recovered with a colorful 12 inch parachute.
