Supersonic transport (SST) was supposed to be the future until too loud sonic booms limited the places where these planes could fly.
Estes thought of proposing a quiet supersonic transport plane: the Low-Boom SST could start a new era of supersonic passenger flights.
However, it is only a flying rocket model, great for fun but certainly not able to carry passengers! This does not detract from the beauty of this kit, both in terms of aesthetics and construction.
The kit includes laser-cut balsa parts, including realistic "nacelles" for the under-wing motors, a full set of decals and of course the parachute.
To fly this model you will need a C6-3 type engine.
