    Finished up Dr. Zooch's Freedom 7 kit last week. Patience is definitely warranted here with this one - especially with the LES! Like the way it turned out! Wish you could still get kits from the Doctor!

    last week I created a 3d printed capsule for the Estes MR kit (2", kit #1921). Its for flying only, save the nice one you painstakingly built from the kit for display.
