    I have been building some Flis Kits over the winter and got a few done. I must say that they are excellent.

    Jim makes very interesting and challenging models.

    The Mako is sporting the new Estes 24mm retainer.

    If you have not tried a Flis Kit yet, give one a try. You will not be disappointed.

    Cheers!!

    FlisKits Bulls Eye (SP024) Basic Information.

    Mfg. Description: The Bull's Eye features a short, fat design with laser cut fins, large tail ring and a large peel-n-stick vinyl sticker! (FlisKits 2011 Catalog)

    =====

    FlisKits wanted to add some more fun to our selection of beginner kits, and the Bull's Eye was the answer!

    One of the problems with beginner kits is that very easy construction tends to lead to a very simple looking model as a result. The Bull's Eye is anything BUT simple looking! NINE fins, large tail ring, fat and stubby. This model hits the mark as a sharp looking model but is STILL a breeze to assemble!

    A bit pricier than you may have expected, but you get a LOT of rocket for the price! Large diameter (2.217") with laser cut fins, a large tail ring and a decorative logo sticker!

    The key to the easy assembly is that the flat bottom fins and tail ring are all situated such that they are flat (even) with the bottom of the main body tube. Therefore, you can stand the model up on the assembly jig (provided) and all of the parts just slide up to the model and will stand on their own as the glue dries. The assembly jig even eliminates the need for marking off fin locations and drawing lines on the tube.

    Perfect for the beginner and the advanced rocketeer alike! This model is also perfectly suited for conversion to 24mm flight, for the more advanced rocketeers by purchasing the EMK-24-70 engine mount kit or you could even consider a cluster modification. Just be sure to add adequate nose weight, as needed, to counter the extra weight of the larger motors and clusters.

    The Bull's Eye is a fun rocket to build and fly and is sure to become a favorite of any fleet!

    Also, the Bull's Eye is perfect for the classroom looking for something different to build and fly. The unique look of this model will make it the pride of any beginner and a classroom favorite! (Fliskits 2013 Web Ad)
