Rocket of the Week – 6/15/2006

This weeks rocket of the week is the versitile payloader – The Semroc Goliath. This rocket kit allows you to build this payloader with 3 engine variations. You can choose from a single 18mm, a single 24mm, or (as I did) the 3 engine 18mm cluster. The Goliath is a true Semroc rocket originally released in 1969 as Semroc's sixth kit and at the time of it's release, it was Semroc's largest rocket. The kit draws it's inspiration from the Estes Astron Ranger. I found the build to be an satisfying experience because of the excellent quality of the Semroc parts. Currently I have yet to define my final plans for the use of the large payload bay. It will probably house a Boostercam in the near future. Here is an EMRR review.
