I have collected this entire series and the only original I have built is the F-16. Also know, the Estes F-61 uses the same plastic parts as you can see from my build. The F-16 is a cool design, but I am not a fan of the cardboard parts. Also was not a fan of the red plastic nose cone. You can see the red still bled through even after coating with grey primer. I ended up striping the paint of the nose, priming with black followed by grey then gloss white to hid the red bleed.
