Hi Everyone,

I decided to work on my kit today and knock it out. I learned a lot from this kit and found out the little attention to details that I want to pay attention to on my next build. Here are some pictures. Thanks for all of the help everyone with all of my questions!

Very nice! The bad thing about building rockets is you always want to build another one even better

It looks good, Patrick. :)

I look forward to seeing it fly soon at Fiesta Island.

Nice! Little rockets like that are a hoot. Even on an A8 they zip off the pad in a HURRY. When you are ready to loose it try at 18mm SU D10 made by AT.

I've been working on mine this weekend too. Trying to decide if I want to paint the fins red or leave it two tone with decals. . . . decisions decisions decisions.

I really liked the way mine turned out. However, I forgot to sand the body tube and fins after I used the trim and molding glue to fill in the gaps and I am kicking myself about that. At least for the next build I do it will be priority. I can't wait to see how it flies. I ordered a block of 25 A size and a block of 25 B size engines.
