My Eagle kit was decent quality. My Superbird was terrible. I ended up turning a nosecone because the plastic one included in the kit was so malformed. Stevie Wonder would have rejected it if he...

If nobody has an extra, use the Hobby Lobby 40% off coupon to get you a new Nike-X kit for $10 or $12. That amount just for the cone is a bit much, but you also get a BT-55 tube, motor mount,...

I see why folks like the vinyl. There's no trimming of decal material and you will never have yellowing or fading. However, there is a bit of an edge to them and repositioning is more involved.

Looks like a tiny hole between both sets of fins. Pop lug mounts? Altimeter? Ant scale doors?

BTW, not being picky. I was zooming to get a look at the stickershock decals.

Those are white rockets, so there are no white decals. Too bad the guy doesn't have his decals in view in the photos.

Does the Morerockets guy use an ALPS printer? If not, he can't do good white decals either. I seriously doubt he has screen printed decals.
