The 2003 National Sport Launch (NSL) featured a new collectable for which to remember the event. An anniversary kit called the Proconsul. The Proconsul was designed by Drake Demerau and Jim Flis and marks the FIRST EVER anniversary kit for an NSL event.

The resultant design was just too magnificient to let it fade away into the closets of the collectors so, with permission of NEPRA and Drake Demerau, FlisKits is proud to offer the retail version of this kit, the Drake, aptly named after one of its primary designers.

The Drake features large, forward swept wings with a stylish dorsal fin and ramjet tube along with a large (1.637" Diameter) parachute compartment to assure clean ejection of your recovery device. Unique and stylish holes placed in the wing tips and the dorsal fin can be left open (stock) or decorated with standard US Quarters for that rich look! The Drake flies on a variety of 24mm motors allowing you the luxury of flying in most any field size that you have available to you.

Here is my version.

The instructions suggested strengthening the wing joints if you planned to use an E motor. So I added some cardstock panels. Then added rivets and other textures

My compliments on the incredible customization! The model's design lends itself perfectly to the steampunk genre--congrats on the imagination to pull this off so successfully man.
