Borealis. A beautiful display of dancing lights in the Northern sky, powered by the sun. Now also a beautiful ship powered by the interstellar debris left in the wake of the formation of suns.

The Borealis model rocket kit is the newest jewel of a kit that compliments a fleet of jewels from the folks at FlisKits.

Standing over 30" tall, her delicate mid-ship constructions and graceful tube fins create a look that is a first in this long lived sport. The Borealis will make your fleet of model rockets SHINE!
The features of this new kit are many and begins with the most unique set of laser cut parts ever offered. Including fins, centering rings and even parts for two alignment jigs this component packed set of parts give the Borealis her wondrous appearance. In addition to the laser cut parts, the Borealis also features:

Ducted Ejection: No recovery wadding needed! The mid-ship section, constructed from 3 thin tubes functions as a 14" long ejection baffle reaching all the way up to the forward parachute compartment.

Tube Fins: Not just any tube fins, but the largest ever offered in a model rocket kit, for incredible stability and a wonder look too!

Alignment Jigs: Two different jigs that help make a complex assembly a simple process.

Decals: A new form of peel-n-stick decals made from 2 mil vinyl providing vibrant colors and a very aggressive adhesive to keep them in place. Further, these stickers are contour cut to the edge of the decal color so no cutting is required. Historically modelers have dis-liked peel-n-stick decals, but we believe that this new style of material and printing process will change this opinion.

Looks: We can't sit back and ignore the physical appearance of this kit as a feature in and of itself. The stuff that interstellar dreams are made of, the Borealis is truly a thing of beauty. We think that you will agree.
