The PML 1/4 Patriot was my third PML kit and provided me with a Level 1 certification on an Aerotech H123W. The design is clean and efficient. The four inch body tube impresses those unfamiliar with high powered rocketry.I would highly recommend this for a Level 1 attempt.The Krylon paint job has held up pretty well, with the exception of a lot of wear around the booster section's shoulder.

I hadn't developed good epoxy skills yet, and the application of the external fillets was rather clunky.

Dia.: 3.9"
Height: 55.7"
