There's nuthin" like a good Smoke
This was a fun and interesting build, my first square rocket. Parts seem to be of high quality and fit well. Fins are TTW type, so they almost self-align. The body tube is very sturdy. One thing though is the spirals seem to be deeper than conventional round tubes, so you may want to fill with CWF prior to painting. The decals are good, and include extra vent hatches, which I used on other Nike Smoke models. In short, a real conversation piece.
