Looks awesome. Spirals could use some work...Done!
I'll probably seal the decals on the booster, but I don't want to add mass to the glider.
This was a real pleasure to build! A very high quality kit.
2 suggestions on building.
1. As I said be careful of paint on the glider mount. The fit is tight. No real big deal, just a bit of sanding to fix it.
2. The booster side stripes decals. The stripe needs to be snug against the canard. Cut it such before you wet the decals. They will cut with a sharp xacto when wet though. I speak from experience on this.
Here she is next to my 1960's kit:
The MMX booster fits on the "full" sized booster:
If the weather holds I might get to launch her tomorrow!
One final thought, You guys did Carls memory proud with this kit!
A modern classic.

Now the little guy has had all the voids filled and it is ready to sand in preparation for a light coat of primer.
Where are You Folks moving to? I know where ERockets is located having lived in the Dayton, Ohio general area for 20 + years now. Thanks!I'll post pictures when I can, unfortunately it will be at least a couple of weeks before I can do that. We are preparing to move into a larger location and things have already started getting boxed up prior to the move.
Nice job on the build and finishing!
