Brief

This is a simple Skill Level 1 low-power build that was a fun evening. The kit couldn't be any simpler to build and the instructions were awesome. It will be a nice addition to my Patriot Battery when the weather breaks for painting.

Components

Nothing surprising here, a simple nine-inch body tube, plastic two-piece nosecone, a motor block, launch lug, and rubber shock cord with streamer. 

Construction

There were no cons to speak of. The instructions could not have been simpler. If there was anything to mention maybe the lack of a fin guide, but on a rocket this size its not needed (unless being built as a first kit maybe).

Finishing

No decals. Typical Patriot pain job. Small vinyl letters from a craft store could do the ARMY real easy if you wanted. Have not started on painting due to the weather, but the tube is very smooth. I doubt it will need more than a coat of primer to fill the spirals.
