In the old days, Estes had a rocket called the Screamin' Mimi that was BT-60 based and could be kit-bashed into any one of several great rockets from the past, Der Red Max and Citation Patriot being the first two to come to mind. The Star Orbiter could well be the kit-bash rocket of choice for today. I bought one and built it as a shorter version of the SO using only one of the supplied BT-60 tubes. The other one served as the lower body tube of an FSI Eos. The shortened SO goes by the name Rat Bite, which I thought was a clever use of the stock decal. Apparently I wasn't the only one.
