I really enjoyed this one. I like that it has three fairings, but you get tubes to cut four, so if you mess one up you have another. I thought my first three were fine, so I did not cut the fourth. Like the last few models I did I cut the templates and marking guides from my German instructions. That is a great feature. You can save an intact set of instructions. My last two builds are the Expedition and the Odyssey which are both template heavy.

it is a really sturdy build. The fairing over the fins make it so neither will come off easily. Now, I just have to decide my paint colors. I like the scale like look and might go silver like the Mercury Atlas. My next build will be a quick one that has no tube cutting.

I've been wanting to try this kit. It just screams "Cluster me!"
