A straight forward but very “unique” build that will look great on the launch pad and in the sky.

You ask and we listen! Here’s another highly sought after “bring back” from years gone by! Missed the Starship Nova the first time around? Well guess what? You are in luck now! Only slight build modifications from the original rocket, you won’t be disappointed! A very unique design and standard engine powered to boot!

It was a HUGE hit the first time around and is sure to be a collector’s item this time around!!

    This is the kind of kit I really enjoy building. I like the fin construction and the tube cutting. The painting is really easy and the decals make it look great. My main complaint is that the body tube in my kit wasn’t the same quality I expect. Instead of the smooth finish in most tubes (and the one pictured here), the one I got looked more like a toilet paper tube – brown, furry, and with a very deep seam. I normally don’t bother filling the seams, but it was so pronounced in this one that I had to. Looking forward to flying…

    Loved this rocket, was a very fun build. I would recommend clear coating it just to protect the decals.
