Not much there.
The 3" Patriot kit is a joke. No cone. No decals. Need a Big Red Max kit to complete.

GH,

The Galactic Manufacturing 3D parts are much higher quality than anything else being produced in the model rocketry community. Truly in a league by themselves. The Doorknob parts are just amazing.

Most of the most recent NCR kits use GM parts. Well worth a look.

Galactic uses stereolithography (SLA) printers. This yields much higher resolution and smoother parts as compared to filament printers. The drawbacks of SLA tend to be price (more expensive than filament) and size (most non-industrial SLA printers have a small print volume). I agree their parts are top-notch!

Ahhh gotcha. Did not realize they were using SLA.
We have been using that in my industry for mock-up parts for years.
