I hope that skull and crossbones parachute is nylon - I'd buy the kit just for that

Scaling up the dimensions this should be about 30” long - that should look pretty cool over a big BP motor!

That looks like it’s a new nose cone too - that means upsized Citation Patriots!

I passed this on to the Estes Model Rocket fan FB page with full credit to Turbofireball. Lots of positive reactions.

Cool - Looks like a good kit to get at least 2 of. It'd be excellent if the NC is offered as a part sometime, if not, I suppose I'll need to get yet another kit...
