Rocketarium Retro Rebel Rocket Kit 

It all started when Duke Redsmith bestowed upon himself the title of 'Grand Emperor For Life'... Grand Emperor Redsmith ruled with fear caused by the use of airships to patrol the colonies from above.  No one was safe from his scrutiny...  As sure as a soldier's pay is a sixpence a day, imperial scrutiny leads to mutiny.  Rogue alchemists designed the Retro Rebel skycraft to take down the dreaded airships and fight the airborne tyranny.

This Rocketarium Mega Rebel comes complete with twenty-four pre-cut pieces of light plywood.  The recovery gear includes a Kevlar® heat shield, and an elastic/Kevlar® shock cord combo.  Painting this model is optional and left up to the modeler.

    Posted by Odd-Roc Rocketeer on 29th Aug 2013

    I bought the Retro Rebel kit for our club's annual Odd-Rocs theme launch. It's certainly odd.

    I had one issue when building; the aft centering ring is supposed to have a piece removed to accommodate the engine clip. When I did that the Centering Ring started to delaminate. I tried using some CA glue to stabilize it but when I went to install the motor mount it came apart and the motor mount ended up off center. (Partly my fault for not dry fitting the motor mount first; I think the Centering Ring could have used a little sanding.) I ended up buying parts to rebuild the body tube. This time I applied CA to the whole Centering Ring before cutting it and things went much better.

    I found it easiest to build the "exoskeleton" by dry-assembling it, then removing one vertical piece, applying glue, restoring the vertical piece, then repeating for the other three vertical pieces.

    The supplied Nomex heat shield didn't work well for me. The parachute suffered some minor heat damage. Next time I'll use wadding instead.
