I think it does unless you know of a way to vacu-form balsa.

     I don't know about the best ever (1/45 LJ-II?), but it is certainly good
news. I don't wish to start a Estes v. Centuri holy war, but I think it's head
and shoulders above the Estes version.

Please forgive my poor knowledge of history...did the original Centuri kit have
plastic scale fins? Or were they balsa?

They were vacuformed plastic (i.e. two halves for each fin).
As I recall they were slightly larger than scale, but not as much as
the 2001 Estes fins.

Now if they would only re-release the Orbital Transport, the Scissor Wing
Transport, and the Centuri SST Transport, and the Mach 10....

This is wonderful news. I will by one and build it in the summer after
school...
