Launched on December 18, 1936, L-10 was one of in a family of Goddard rockets known as the “L-series.” L-10 was the first flying rocket in a set of 9-inch (0.229 m) diameter rockets that tested various guidance concepts. L-10 had no guidance system other than its fins, and flew ballistically. The rocket tipped shortly after launch and then flew horizontally. It reached a maximum altitude of 2000 feet (610 m) and landed 2000 feet (610 m) from the launch site. It used liquid oxygen and gasoline pressurized with liquid nitrogen. The overall height of this rocket was 175 inches (4.44 m).

About the model:
The model is designed to be build in scale 1:32. But can be printed and build at a larger or smaller scale. Optional parts are included for that.
