I also found one of these a while back. I have heard from others that
the coupler between the Sandhawk and that "almost-a-Terrier" booster is
weak, and tends to break. I am considering finding a way to strengthen
it. I was thinking of fiberglassing it inside. However, I am not sure if
the epoxy will even stick to the plastic that is used. Any sugggestions
or ideas to beef up the coupler?
Also: Not only is the color scheme incorrect, the decal for the booster
is in black, and ROTW says the lettering is red. The color of the fins
is shown as white in the kit, but black in ROTW, which brings up my next
concern: Will those plastic fins warp when the sun beats on them if I
paint them black?
