I have 2 of these old kits and have been really looking forward to building one. I don't know how old either kit is but they have different parachutes and different payload sections. One of the kits has a spiral flimsy clear tube and the balsa parts don't fit very well. The second one is a yellowing clear tube that is thick and the balsa fits nice. I was going to replace the clear tube with an after market payload section, but no one makes one. Semroc has the balsa pieces, nose and transition but no payload sections. Since I could not find one, I just dipped the thicker clear section in future and it came out nice. I will begin on this build while my Firecat is drying. I have a busy month ahead so my construction time on these rockets is limited.
