It looks like the preliminary price would be $25.00 because of the SEVEN nose cones! I am working on a prototype.

The wraps and small parts are questionable.

At this size I think that suggesting the wraps with decals would be a satisfactory solution. As for the pirated ullage motors and APS fairings, perhaps they achieve the "Ant Scale" solution of Zooch's Saturns. I have long held that a potential tree ornament benefits from a squint and arms length.

It requires RockSim 9.0 because of the pods.

I wrote, "But if we keep putting ideas like this in Carl's head..."

So now that he is working on the kit, I guess we will all have to buy at least two so that he can get back to those motors....

I am relatively certain that not only is Carl multi-threaded but also slices time pretty well.

I'm afraid of what 2x would cost, but I can figure it out on my own.

btw - Carl, I'm finally starting that x2.86 Andromeda. Man it's going to be huge.

We happen to have a 2x of the Baby Orion already in production. Jim Neubauer has a BT-80 version. I though THAT was huge!

Finally released the Andromeda fins and rings. Do you need parts for the upscale?
