    Another interesting fun build followed by a disastrous finish. Nonetheless from 2 or more meters away she'll look the part.

    The final pictures. NO it is not upside down. Its a spaceship. Up is anyway one wants. :)

    You are a perfectionist and a little too picky. That finish looks fine.

    Thanks! :cheers:

    The build thread shows (or talks about) the issues in more depth. I do thank you though as from a distance, or if I pick the right camera angle, it looks 'okay'.

    I am sure on the pad it will look the part!

    Best wishes!

    [​IMG] Fliskits

    Introduced: 2004
    Final Year:
    Designer: Jim Flis

    Mfg. Description: The Night Whisper represents over a year of development to bring you one of the most striking kits in model rocketry today!

    Featuring silk-screened water-slide decals, the Night Whisper also sports a unique split tube with ducted ejection, distinctive ovoid fins with an inspiring slant and enough guns and antennae to satiate the most tried and true SciFi fan among us.

    This model boosts straight and true on the B and C motors. Being a bit too heavy for A motors, we do not recommend that you use them. This is one of the most majestic models, in the air, that we have ever seen.

    A great addition to your growing fleet of FlisKits model rocket kits and a wonderful introduction into what FlisKits kits are all about: Fun, Imagination, Excitement!

    The United Solar Planetary Federation continues to expand its borders into the far reaches of the Milky Way galaxy. To satisfy the needs of this rapid growth, ships were needed to serve many functions. From troop deployment in areas of aggression to supplying remote outposts with supplies, equipment and personnel as well as new exploratory satellites
    to reach even further.

    The Night Whisper is just such a ship. Heavily armed with the latest in weapons technology along with the best in state of the art Hyper-TAC communications, the Night Whisper class Hauler is best suited for long range missions into unexplored regions of space. Primarily a research vessel and colony ship, the Night Whisper pushes the boundaries of explored space setting up remote outposts and eventual colonies, further expanding the human presence throughout the galaxy.

    All officers aboard such vessels also carry full diplomatic credentials allowing them to secure treaties with foreign races that are encountered, inviting them to join our Planetary Federation. They are, of course free to decline but they would not then be able to take advantage of the resources of the thousands of already established members of our growing federation.

    Constructed of the latest in stealth and cloaking technology and employing the swiftest in star-warp propulsion, the Night Whisper can quickly avoid unfriendly areas if detected but also has the ability to stand and fight when the situation warrants it.

    Earning the respect of space fairing races throughout the explored galaxy, the Night Whisper is sure to make a fine addition to your fleet of model rocket kits. So, place your seat back and tray table in their upright and locked position and prepare to let your imagination take you to the farthest reaches of the universe!(Fliskits 2012 Web Ad)

    I modified the Night Wing into the "Kimono Dragon". Years ago at work I sat next to a small call center. The ladies in the group were talking during a slow time and one of my friends was talking about visiting the zoo and seeing these big lizards, you know the kimono dragons. I sat there for a few seconds waiting for someone to catch her mistake, but no one said anything. Finally I yelled over the cubicle wall, "I think you mean the Komodo Dragons". Everyone in the group busted up laughing, even the crusty old supervisor. Over lunch I found a photo of Godzilla and a kimono and merged the two, and the Kimono Dragon was born. I gave her the photo and she thought it was a hoot and kept the photo at her desk for years.

    I eventually told her the Kimono Dragon would be a great name for a rocket and said one day I would build one. Neither of us work for that company anymore, but I finally built this one for her. I sent her these photos; I think she’ll like the rocket.
