Default Red Nova build

Finally finished my Red Nova, except Iíll probably matte clear coat it to protect decals and dull the glossy finish.

I won this at a launch in Pueblo during SCOREís Chili Blaster Event in September, before it hit the market.

So much for being the first one to have a completed Red Nova ...

Very nicely done, Lee.

Here's mine, awaiting it's first flight at SEARS. Flies great.

Very nice. And that reminds me, I didnít add the conduits. My build took so long, I guess I misplaced them. And if I would have looked at the instructions during the 2018 part of this build, I might have noticed!

I had the original Starchaser kit sitting around for YEARS before I finally got around to finishing it. I think the nose cone is jinxed.
