Here is a kit I built some time ago, posted the build on the old Estes forums. I bought a few of these kits for about 13-15 bucks. Easy straight forword build. The build pictures are with my old camera, I used my newer camera last night to take the finished pictures.

Very very nice! Great looking rocket! Awesome finish, too. Is this a current kit, or OOP?

It is no longer made. Easy to clone, Sandman sells the decal.

I built a version from InFlight Rockets. Great kit but unfortunately they have been off-line for a few months now, not sure what their status is... :confused2:

Did an EMRR writeup: http://www.rocketreviews.com/reviews/all/inflight_firehawk.shtml

Mine came out pretty heavy. It will fly ok on a C6-3 but only off of a 48" rod. A D10 or D13 is perfect for this one. :D

I've got an original still in the bag, can't decide if I want to build it with a 24mm motor mount and fly it on D12s and E15s
