I didn't see another build of this model so I thought I would people a heads up.

The instructions for this model are extremely poor. I recommend that you take the time to identify all the part before starting because it is very hard to determine from the step instructions.

It's weird but the main body tube and the engine mount are the same diameter and joined by the the engine block which more like a thick stage coupler.

There have been a couple of others (most recently, Nytrunner's), but it's good to see another. However, your images aren't working.

Woo, another Blackstar!
Be sure and take your time with this thing, It demands respect.

I ended up spending a month building mine, and another doing the cosmetics. It was worth it though!
It still hasn't flown cuz I'm not sure I want to send it on a D12, but I definitely DON't want to use an E12....

If you view this place using an old fashioned pc/web brower you can scroll down and get a nice Similar Threads list:

Searching this place using a search engine rather than the forum search function almost always give better results:

Yes, the Estes international hieroglyphics are quite challenging. BTW if you rotate your pictures (left, right, straighten, save) before posting they will display the way you want. I did this with MS Paint:

Sorry, I don't have any hints for mobile device users. :blush:
