    My wife picked this up for me for christmas. It was a total surprise! Its not a MLC, weighs about 8lbs, and needs lots of work but I'm looking forward to it! Not sure of the maker, but was initialed. Anyone seen it before? The last pic is an unknown ring that was in the box.

    Looking at the thruster balls I would have to agree. GA kit. Is the rocket kinda oval shaped? Is the main body fiberglass? The fuel tank caps look identical to the one I have.

    exactly! Im not complaining though. Like I said, Im looking forward to playing with it. She picked it up cheap, $100. Cant go wrong with that. Gives me more time to practice and save up for the new MLC JP.

    Where did your wife get it? I would really like to know who she got it from.

    It's a GA...the price is great for a JP kit. It'll clean up nice

    I think I'm at a respectable point I could show my JP off. About 2 months of on and off work. And do I mean work! The light washed out alot of weathering but I still may go alittle darker.
