Flashback to the early 80's with GAME OVER. The 8-bit graphics on the decals remind us of another time. Model features an injection nose cone, die-cut fins, and streamer recovery. Includes pressure-sensitive decals, quick-release engine mount for fast engine change. Flights over 1000 ft are possible.
Again, Custom makes a pretty, budget-oriented rocket that can get a lot of altitude! The graphics and suggested color scheme really take one back to the quarter-arcade days of the late 1970s & early 1980s.
Decals are thick, plasticized self-stick pieces that require a bit of careful trimming, but the results look great. Some of the kits are packed with a black injection-molded plastic nose cone, which I think makes assembly in the suggested deco much easier. My only suggestion is that - like most items painted silver - careful filling of the tube spirals and filling or papering the wood grain on the fins would make for a much better presentation when painted.
A great little rocket at a really good price!
