No offense to a John Boren and Estes, but the STM-012 just struck me as a great kit to modify!

A friend bought a dealer pack of 12 for under a $100, and I offered to buy a few if he wanted. (He had already been buying them when they were on clearance. He had plenty.) He gave me one and told me he was anxious to see what Id do.

Well, I cut it up, made the cutoff from the lower tube a payload compartment, converted to mini rail buttons, and modded the fins a bit. Other than that, its stock.

Undecided on paint, but maybe a Bandit scheme (yellow/white/black).

Jeez! Don't you guys know anything?! The cat read "PIKE" on the side and therefore assumes there's a fish inside.
