Not a big fan of any of those MPC designs, but your paint scheme makes this one look really good.
Hope it flies as well as it looks.

Is the stand for your rocket home made or commercially available?

I bought the display stand from eRockets.

I am thinking of sanding/sealing it, painting it white and applying a MPC logo decal to it.

Stand is sanded and sealed.

Primer is next.

Then gloss white and an MPC decal.

I will post a picture when it is done.

I finished painting the eRockets stand and applied an MPC decal from the sheet that came with the rocket kit.

All done.
