I am happy to announce the release of my newest kit, Mars Probe.
Here are some specs:
Length.........14"
Diameter.......976"
Span.............4.7"
Eng...............A8-3, B6-4(First Flt) C6-5
Recovery.......12" chute
Skill level........3
Water slide decals.....yep
Kevlar recovery system....as it should be:D

Price..............14.25 +S/H

This is a great little ring/fin combo rocket that is as much fun to build as it is to fly. Kit will be available for retail on Oct 1st. Until then, TRF members can take advantage of special pricing until then. (See yard sale thread regarding Mars Probe)

Here are some great pics

I really like the swirly pattern on the rings!

Is that included in the decal set?

Really cool!

You did it again! I'm not sure why, but I am drawn to the Thrustline Original kits.

HOWEVER, I have promised myself that I will not buy any new kits until all I have are built.

So someone else will need to build, fly and review this one.

Very cute!

Scores a 10.0!

Does it have lasered cut fins?

No? The judges will deduct a tenth from the overall score.

Just kidding.

Is anyone else suffering from Olympic withdrawal?

I like the paint scheme much better than I've seen before (your website maybe?). The pics are to be better too - more angles!

someday, I will buy one!? I like it alot!

Yep. The trim will be included along with some tips as to installation. There are even more decals than what then I used to give the builder a little flexability.
