  1. Defending Europe

    The Honest John is another great thin-walled fiberglass kit from Madcow. Easy build and it flies great. Use Rust-oleum camouflage spray paint in army green to get a flat military style finish.

The HONEST JOHN M31 was a simple, free-flight rocket capable of delivering a nuclear warhead. This highly mobile system was designed to fire like conventional artillery in battlefield areas. The Basic (M31) HONEST JOHN system was first deployed in 1954. It was replaced by the Improved (M50) HONEST JOHN (left) in 1961 which reduced the system's weight, shortened its length, and increased its range. In July 1982, all HONEST JOHN rocket motors, launchers, and related ground equipment items were type classified obsolete.
