"Impressive kit!"
jmtolliver
The Astrobee D is such a great looking rocket when it's all finished. I really enjoyed building this beast but it was a bit more involved than the Initiator kit. The placement instructions for the decals, etc. were a bit unclear to me. I probably should have looked at some other builds to make sure I was putting things in the correct spots but all in all I was really happy with the finished product. And much like the Initiator, this rocket is designed to be constructed with CA glue. Having talked with one of the designers, I would NOT use epoxy or anything besides the recommended CA glue to assemble this kit. I have not launched this rocket yet but hope to soon! Got a couple G motors primed and waiting!

"Fun build!"
tank1984714
Another great kit from Aerotech. The Astrobee D is a little more of a challenge compared to the other Aerotech kits. I only say that because you have to cut a few pieces of plastic trim yourself, but It just adds to the fun of the build. Absolutely worth adding to your collection!

"Top of the line."
sumthin00 (Stevens Point WI 54481)
Very nice kit. carefully watch placement of the antennas and the silver decorative rail guide ( Launch configuration) and also the decals, as the instructions are not very clear on that. I use springs from the local ace hardware, as antennas. No fear of them breaking and it looks awesome on the pad .

"I Love This Rocket!"
FinBurner (Brandonbacn@outlook.com)
Once built, this is an impressive rocket! It is very easy to build and the instructions are very clear. My only complaint is that the body tube spirals are pretty deep and take more work than most to fill.
