    I discovered i had the leftover afterburner assembly from an SR71 kit that made a nice addition to the Warp pod, and would be less likely to impact terra firma.

    Here is my Alien8 that I did a few years back. The neighbor kids really like the rocket as do I.

    Finished the Alien 8, neat design and a great kit by Fliskits. The front half is painted Duplicolor black, rear is painted with Duplicolor Metallic Green. Doesn't show up great in the pics, but looks good in the sun.

    Not a hard kit to build, but finishing requires some patience.

    Fliskits Alien8 (SHX001) Basic Information.

    [​IMG] Fliskits

    MODEL NAME: Alien8 Also known as:

    NUMBER: SHX001

    Introduced: 2004
    Final Year:
    Designer: Shrox

    Type: Exotic
    Motor Mount: 1x18mm
    Recovery: Parachute
    Stages: 1
    Length: 39.0"
    Diameter: 0.976"
    Span: 7.754"
    Weight: 2.4 oz

    Mfg. Description: "Lean, Mean eater of human spleens!"

    The Alien8 is sure to frighten everyone at your next launch.

    The Alien8 is the first in what we hope will become an entire series of model rocket kits designed by Shrox of SHROX Industria!

    This particular design comes to us from a very private race of beings who inhabit the Horse Head Nebula. Their xenophobic nature has led to much speculation but little real information about their biology, science or philosophies. While very aggressive, this race seems to have accepted a lasting truce with their surrounding neighbors.

    The Alien8 will make a fine addition to any model rocket collection and is a wonderful complement to the FarScape model rocket kits by FlisKits. (Fliskits 2005 Catalog)

    =====

    The Alien8 is the first in what we hope will become an entire series of model rocket kits designed by Shrox of SHROX Industria!

    The Shrox line of model rocket kits by FlisKits can be identified by their unique model numbers (all beginning with SHX) as well as their unique color slash on the kit cover art. All Shrox kits will bear a light purple slash.

    The FlisKits Alien8 came about after months of discussion with Shrox. It was finally decided that his designs truly compliment the types of model rocket kits that FlisKits strives to bring to the model rocket community.

    This particular design comes to us from a very private race of beings who inhabit the Horse Head Nebula. Their xenophobic nature has lead to much speculation but little real information about their biology, science or philosophies. While very aggressive, this race as seemed to accept a lasting truce with her surrounding neighbors.

    The Alien8 will make a fine addition to any model rocketry collection and is a wonderful compliment to the FarScape model rocket kit by FlisKits. While this is the same design as the original Alien8 kit by Shrox Industria, FlisKits has implemented many subtle changes and improvements to help the modeler realize the full potential of this wonderful design. All modifications were approved by Shrox himself, and will make this model a joy to build and to own.

    Changes include the use of silk-screened waterslide decals, balsawood nose cones, laser cut light plywood for the main round fins, easier part preparation, Kevlar enhanced recovery system and a fin jig to help in attaching fins.

    Look for this and other fun and exciting model rocket kits as we continue to bring you the best that model rocketry has to offer! (Fliskits 2013 Web Ad)
