(Sport Rocketry - Mar/Apr 1995 - page 25 - by Joe Warnock)
"The Astra 1 is a very straightforward level 1 sport flyer that makes up into an attractive model."
"Quality of the materials in the kit was high, with the exception of liberal flash around the tip and base of the plastic nose cone."
"Quest uses color coding on parts for the engine mount. I like the idea, especially since this kit is intended for beginners."
"I also like the Kevlar shock cord mounting system."
"The shroud lines are pre-cut to size!"
". . . the only instructions for assembling the parachute are printed in the margins of the parachute sheet."
"The Astra 1 uses die cut balsa fins."
"Astra 1 comes with self stick "decals" that are printed on paper."
"Overall, I'd recommend this kit for an experienced beginner, one who's built a couple of kits already, or a novice builder with some dedicated, experienced help."
The entire article gives the impression is that this kit is a basic model for beginners/novice modelers.
