Well according to guru John Boren, there are some changes to the kit in terms of fin material and a 24mm plastic retainer system instead of the metal engine hook. So it is different. Maybe because this kit's name starts with "E" they wanted to keep it E powered. So i guess we need a Fatalizer or Finalizer kit (F powered).

I love the Vagabond on 24mm E12s.....I need to build another one (or two) - maybe one with a 29mm mount., though the Star Orbiter does scratch that itch pretty well (especially flying with a JL Chute Release).

Meanwhile, back to the Executioner....

I don't think the current 29mm 50 n-sec F15-x will "Fatalize" or "Finalize" any rocket it will fit into.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and NEVER touch the brake !!!

If you are NOT FLYING LOW in the left lane, you need to GET THE #$&@ OUT of it !

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask, you probably aren't
