    Once again Estes proves itself with precision and quality of design. With that said. This was a fun build everything fit like a glove. And how can’t you love the Flash Gordon/Buck Rodgers retro look.

    Great looking addition to my fleet

    For me, the best part of this rocket is the swoopy 1930’s Buck Rogers / art deco-ish look to it. I have had this kit in the build queue for months while I finished up other builds in preparation for an upcoming launch. With the workbench cleared off, I have gotten started and it doesn’t disappoint. The Level 3 skill level is about right, but it will still challenge your craftsmanship skills to make it look sharp. Along those lines, take extra care with the engine mount dimensions so that the tail cone locates correctly. Also trim and sand the tail cone carefully so that it fits snugly on the engine mount. A bit of finesse with the x-acto knife and a small file will reward you with a cutout in the engine hook fairing that doesn’t catch on the hook. The rest seems to be fairly straight forward. Hopefully I’ll get to see it fly by Christmas.
