I am always a sucker for the sci-fi fantasy models like these, the unique nose cone is what makes it, well, unique. Yeah, why not make some new kits with this nose & nozzle, kind of like the Scorpion, Lynx, and Puma, you know? Just keep 'em coming, I will keep buying 'em.

Everybody should at least build one in their lifetime!

The Hobby Lobbys in my area are getting very sparse on rocketry products. Hopefully they will restock for the holidays.

I like the model but I think that's how long it would take me to build!

I always that this was ugly, even though Sci-Fi models are some of my favorites. Perhaps it'll sell poorly and we'll be able to get them deeply discounted in a couple years - might be fun to build one for the E16/F15.

Kinda looks like something that would have been featured in the original Battlestar Galactica as a "Garbage Scow/Trawler" holding contaminated Solium.

Here is a pic of what I got from Christine at Estes years ago.

The second and third pic is what I did with it.

Good stuff!

Did you turn the inner ball? (How?) Or is that hand sculpted?

I shaped it separately and glued it on.

The entire cone was made with blue foam then fiberglass/epoxy.

I found your CAD drawing in an old thread of that build and scaled down to make measurements for a cardstock 18mm powered version. Main body is 24mm with 13mm tanks. Shown here next to a MR for scale, and a couple of other cardstock builds. Thanks for sharing that, the instructions had a good top view, but your side view really showed the window well.
