Ad looks fine. It would be nice to get a real URL for your business, and at least put some real pictures on all your kits listed on your web page.

I think the ad looks fine.
I second the website comments above.

Did I miss something? Has US Rockets changed its name to Instaship? Not a bad change but that is what the ad looks like.

I dig the component photo, but a picture of the finished kit would be better!

Yes, "INSTASHIP" could be less intrusive. Combine the text with the banner and make it a bit smaller and it would still stand out.

Instaship? At today's level of service, where I can order something from Apogee or Balsa Machining Service today, and get the order delivered in two days, I wouldn't make a claim like "get it next week" as insta-anything. Claims like that in big bold letters might seem a bit like an exaggeration, which is something I recommend that you avoid doing. The big bold letters won't convince the saavy shoppers that there is truly anything "value added" about "instaship."

Instaship refers to requesting the item via email, then paying upon delivery/inspection instead of paying up front like we usually do. It doesn't refer to how quick it actually arrives after the order is placed.

The website is kind of a pain to use. I cannot readily find certain things, like the retro-rockets. Would be nice if easier to navigate.
