"Easy to build, fun to fly"
jmattingly13
This is a fantastic kit. It's easy to build, so novices shouldn't be discouraged by it, and I got to practice some techniques I had seldom used--namely putting a good deal of effort into a nice paint job. I also used this model to teach myself foiling the fins. I've seen multiple copies of this model at launches I go to, a testament to its solid design and construction.

"Poor quality control"
wallyum (Ft. Thomas, KY)
I picked one of these kits up on the cheap because 18mm powered BT-60 rockets are great on my home field. One of the first things I noticed was that one of the fins was shorter than the other three. Not a huge problem, but it made me wonder. The kits builds up fine, and with a little work looks pretty decent. Sticker decals are useless.

 
"Solid, good looking rocket"
robert_s_schmidt
A solid all around rocket. Looks good on the launch pad, flies well. Super sturdy! I put the fins on with wood glue. On a recent launch, the shock cord popped off of the parachute/nose cone and fell from the ejection height (B6-4 engine). Only damage was a partially broken off fin, which was easily glued back on with model cement. I would highly recommend it, although not necessarily for a first build.

 
"Estes US ARMY Patriot M-104 Great Kit, but Needs Upgrades"
champfluff
Love this kit, my brother and I have the same kit and I wanted to build mine differently. The decal layout shows a tail cone/ boat tail and a conduit/ launch rail that runs the length of the BT-60, not included with the kit. To make your Patriot full scale, instead of semi-scale, the boat tail and conduit will need to be included. The altitude should be improved slightly, do to the reduced drag on the aft fin can. The tail cone can be fabricated, but Estes makes a plastic transition for the BT-60 from an Estes Extreme 12. The conduit is just a strip of balsa the full length of the longer white tube in the kit. After all these external mods I still was not satisfied, so I modified the engine mount for a 24mm E Motor, slotted the body tube, added fin tabs for through tube slots, installed an ejection baffle, nylon shock cord and parachute and minimal additional nose weight, for the proper C/G stability. It looks impressive on BP motors and haven't flown it on composites yet, but will soon.
