No problem! Have you flown you large X-15 yet? I have your smaller X-15 kit, still unbuilt.Nola thanks for trying to help. It's easy to find just click on the product page. Here's a direct link: https://sngaero.wordpress.com/products/ scroll way down. The kit is detailed cast resin parts for the nose cone and boat tail. Balsa fins plug into the slots in the boat tail. Easy build. Very scale. Very high flyer on a C6 and some have put D's in them. Very straight flyer too. I just flew mine a few weeks ago and it was perfect. I'm planning a larger one for myself down the road here for G motors.

Here's the old art work from years back. Still available today.
Yes, I highly recommend it. BT-101, almost 4". With a LIGHTWEIGHT blow-molded nose, and reasonably light tailcone. That Maxi-Brute kit was a bit underpowered on a D12, is PERFECT for E and F (and even G) [power flying. Do note it needs some noseweight to be as stable with a big motor as it is on a D12.For the OP there is also the Estes V2 Maxi-Brute. Have to pay Ebay prices as it is OOP.
Is that a custom kit?
I’m partial to the Maxi-Brute because it was my first ‘big’ rocket. I had the 70’s version in the older box, though I’m guessing there is little difference in the actual model. Its first and only flight failed spectacularly. I have a couple of the reissue kits, so will probably try a couple different paint patterns.Yes, I highly recommend it. BT-101, almost 4".

The 4" V-2's by others are way heavier. so they go lower for a v=given motor, or cost far more to fly on a bigger motor, for a similar altitude.
Note that V-2 "Maxi-Brute" kit from the mid 1970's would bring a way higher price on eBay than the re-issued kit of the 1990's. The reissue goes for $80-100 or so on eBay, last I saw. Just pretend it's being sold by some other company as a "lightweight 4" V-2" for $80- $100 or so and get it on ebay. Anything else of that size sucks in comparison (due to the weight).
