Wanted to post a build thread on Toby's (Big_Red_Daddy on the forum) cloned Mega Der Red max kits. He's doing them in both 29mm and 38mm flavors and since I already have the Estes one with the 29mm, I got this one with the 38mm. (more fun right!?) I also got the optional nosecone bulkplate for nose-cone A/V and deploy. My guess is that the "Standard" clone comes with the standard MRDM nose. The kit arrived in a nicely padded box and came complete with Estes-type instructions, with a supplemental page that had additional notes on items that were added like a Kevlar shock cord, rail buttons, 38mm retainer and the nose cone additions. Out of the box, the quality is fantastic for a realistically-priced clone kit. (He also has Leviathans, but someone already did a write up on that one...) One delta I noted was that the balsa skins that go over the birch ply are pre-cut two piece items, and they are perfect in their fit/shape to the underlying ply. Saves a lot of exacto cutting like in the original kit. Rail buttons (3-piece versions) are included as well. 38mm retainer is an estes-like screw retainer. And the stock 30" Estes chute is included.
