I am just starting this one so this thread will go a little slower.
An Estes Xarconian Cruiser
Scratch built 24mm booster stage
Extended length - because I had the tube and couplers
Baffle
Custom other bits - like additional simulated boosters, hidden launch lugs, extra fins

Papered fins and preview of the 2nd stage:


Additional cosmetic boosters:

I actually got the kit as part of a 2 pack off EBAY (along with a Screaming Eagle)
It was sitting in my cabinet for a while, guess this forum has inspired me :)

I'm in. Great idea to 2-stage these sci-fi kits. I just added this build to the Multistage Awesomeness thread.

Did a little work on the Cruiser today - almost ready for paint. I am thinking maybe a "hammered" finish.
