While at NIRCON last month, I was the fortunate recipient of a few raffle prizes, one of which was a Newway Space Models Q-Bee.

This is the smallest of the Newway models, and uses their standard ~1" square body tube, and is designed for 13 mm propulsion, the tagline is "The Sting of Mini Motor Power".

Being the first Newway kit, I was impressed with the quality of the materials, and some of the best LPR instructions I've seen. Top-notch laser cut fins, a very nice parachute kit, laser cut CRs (wait, is there such a thing as a square ring?), high quality round shock cord & kevlar, and cool square nose cone (wait, it's really a pyramid, not a cone, right?).

Assembly was straight forward, the only ding is there is really no way to fill the spirals, since the seams overlap instead of having a small gap. So, I didn't worry about it, hit the whole thing with primer, sanded, and painted with some good "Old" Krylon.

Decals went on fine, didn't require any decal film to thicken.
