With just intermediate skills I would recommend this rocket to anyone that has experience building one. The fins were a challenge to get straight, but w/a little effort they came together fine. The paint-job was not in my taste, so I painted it a Tan & Forest-green....replicating a camouflage pattern that these ground-to-air missiles most represented. Not only does it look great, it flies great too!. I would recommend this rocket to anyone with moderate skills & looking for a challenge. You will NOT be disappointed!

I am building this rocket and it's proving to be a good challenge for an intermediate-level builder. I bought this for both the fin and color design. Both are proving to live up to expectations. I recommend an extra application of glue to make sure that the fin damage is minimal on any hard landings. Also, stick to the recommended colors as they look great together - although a bit of creative customization (e.g., small American flag on a fin) is definitely on my radar as I complete it.
