This kit was received as a surprise gift. When I opened the package I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the kit parts. Good instructions made for an easy build. It was so simple I had to force myself to wait for the glue to dry between steps! The only area where I ran into any problem was a loose nose cone that took a couple of layers of masking tape to snug up. I do recommend taking your time when assembling the parachute so that you can be positive that the shroud lines are well captured by the supplied tape discs.
I chose to follow the kit paint scheme since I already had the required colors on hand. My red was a bit darker than the decals but a small piece of deep blue trim tape from my RC finishing supplies provided a nice demarcation between the two reds. The decals went on easily and laid down very well. I still hit them with a bit of Microsol since I do that to all waterslide decals as a matter of course.
Once everything is done you end up with a sleek, elegant A-B-C motor rocket. Given its length I do recommend a calm day for your first flights so that you can become accustomed to its flight characteristics. Also stick with the lower or middle of the recommended motors unless you have someone to help you track it because it will get out of sight on a C6-5 due to its small size.
This was my first Custom Rockets kit but it certainly won't be my last!
