Dedicated designers at Estes have taken G. Harry Stines original model, sketches and drawings of the ANTAR, and brought it back to life. Now you can buy your very own piece of rocket history today.

G. Harry Stine believed in a future for humanity among the stars, and his lifes work was dedicated to that dream.

Harry Stine is known as the Father of Model Rocketry and founder of the National Association of Rocketry. One of the original pioneers that founded the hobby right alongside Vern Estes, Stine was also a talented writer. This Estes Designer Signature Series kit is a faithful reproduction crafted by Estes designers from many sketches Stine created as well as the actual original model which is from the personal collection of Estes Vice President Bill Stine (who happens to be Harrys son). Antar was not designed as a flying model rocket because in 1951 the hobby didnt exist yet!  Stine was a physicist and clearly understood the science of flight, so even though Antar was a fictional vehicle, the science behind it meant it could be stable in flight.
