Default Thrustline Aerospace Starship Electra

Thanks to Frank Claunch (the mole), here are the instructions, templates and decals for the Thrustline Aerospace Starship Electra.

The original fin alignment wraps sent out with the kits were incorrect. The second pdf contains the corrected fin alignment wraps.

Twenty-six pages of instructions?
Full Color?
Wow! Expensive production.

This kit could be cloned easily by starting with the ESTES Expedition. https://www.acsupplyco.com/skill-le...on-model-rocket

Other tubes and centering rings, nose cones can be got from eRockets or BMS.
I know because I have done it.

26 full color pages of instructions is excessive for any kit short of a super-scale Apogee Saturn.
