I really like these new kits Estes is coming out with and picked this one up at the local hobby store. The build looks simple but I will say it was a little challenging with the card stock. The laser cutting dust makes a mess and I had to keep washing my hands and there are a lot of little tabs you have to cut as to not rip the card stock. The two BT wings were warped and slightly crushed making the rings a little challenging. I used plain Elmers glue for 100 percent of the build. At first I thought I could paint the rings and main body of the rockets separate but then realized gluing it all together after painting would be a pain. I used drinking cups to try and keep the rings straight while gluing to the paper shroud and card stock. The little tabs will bend easy so you have to be real careful when gluing it all together. I added glue fillets and will begin painting tomorrow. I will paint the yellow then mask and paint the black.
