Estes Space Corps Corvette Class, #7281 Build, Part 6, Details & Decals
The fin detail "guns" are slid in place and glued at the ends.
Check the exposed ends to make sure that the rear end of the red gun extends 1/2" out the back. The front exposure is longer.
I really like the new 18mm screw-on engine retainers.
I glued the threaded center ring in place with the Beacon Fabri-Tac. On the right is the screwed on retainer.
This build was a pre-production sample kit. There is always something that gets revised before kits are sold.
The Star in the Stars and Bars isn't resting on two points. This star will be rotated and corrected before the kit is distributed.
The kit I received had a full decal sheet. I was asked not to place the decals, that would be done by Estes after the model was sent back.
I did cut and place one fin decal side to show how colorful this model is. This was removed before shipping back to Penrose.
