That's because it was "coming soon" this morning, but by the time you saw it they moved it to "what's new."

I have to agree with you. There just something about it that doesn't excite me.

Me three. It's a cool design and I like looking at it but it doesn't make me want to build it. I think it's a slightly odd choice for a bring-back, but what do I know.

I sanded and sealed enough cylinders on the Estes Outlander to last me a loooong time. You guys know how much I love sanding.

I'm thinking along the same lines as everybody else.
I like seeing the bring-backs - But there are too many tube seams to fill!

Maybe Estes should have asked here if they should release this model.

Yeh, not that attractive.

But everybody has an opinion.

For bring backs, how about all the models I showed with the pnc-50sp cockpit nose cone.

Maybe upscales like they did with the Interceptor and Interceptor E.

Everybody likes upscales.

Default PNC-50SP Nose Cone

Or, how about a BT60 upscale of the Soaring Eagle? Shoot, even that with the venerable PNC-60MS or AH would suffice!

With laser-cut stuff, might make THAT build MUCH easier!

Ive made such myself years ago, but *hated* dealing with custom 'fiddly bitz' with such a model. Too bad I cant afford a laser cutter for my 50th birthday!!
