A tiger-striped body tube, precolored plastic nose cone and fins and self-stick decals make building this rocket easy to do in about an hour.

I think we managed to make a pink rocket cool. My daughter wanted her Crossfire pink and I wanted it cool so this is what we came up with.

Here are a few pics of the one I just finished.
One thing I decided to do was leave out the retainer clip and go for friction fit. However, the tail cone had a slot in it to allow for the clip. I used some tape and wood glue on the inside and putty filler sanded down on the outside. Primer and pain and you cannot even see it. Much cleaner look IMHO
