Sirius Rocketry - For the Serious Rocketeer!

Semroc Mars Lander


  • Model: SEM KV-54
  • Manufactured by: Semroc

At Sirius Rocketry, we were excited when one of out all-time-classic favorites was revised and released as part of the "Retro-Repro" line at Semroc! This is the kit that brings back memories to any rocketeer that either had one, or was saving each and every penny hoping to someday get one. It was a sad day when this classic disappeared from the catalogs, but we can rejoice again with the release of the Semroc version!

The Estes® Mars Lander was initially released in 1969. It was the first to use a functional shock absorbing landing gear. Following a trend to more complex model rockets, the Mars Lander was designed to challenge even more experienced modelers. Slow liftoff and low altitude made it ideal for demonstration flights. The Mars Lander was introduced as catalog #K-43.

The Semroc Mars Lander is a faithful recreation of the original. It uses laser-cut balsa fins and laser-cut fiber parts instead of the original die-cut parts. The fiber is also thicker for sturdier construction. High gloss embossed wraps are providedto duplicate the authentic looks of the original. A slightly larger chute is provided for longer life and a gentler recovery. A Kevlar ® cord is provided for better shock cord retention.
