Alien 8



The Alien8 is the first in what we hope will
become an entire series of model rocket kits
designed by Shrox of SHROX Industria!
The Shrox line of model rocket kits by FlisKits
can be identified by their unique model numbers
(all beginning with SHX) as well as their unique
color slash on the kit cover art.  All Shrox kits
will bear a light purple slash.

The FlisKits Alien8 came about after months of
discussion with Shrox.  It was finally decided that
his designs truly compliment the types of model
rocket kits that FlisKits strives to bring to the
model rocket community.  

This particular design comes to us from a very
private race of beings who inhabit the
Horse.Head Nebula.  Their xenophobic nature
has lead to much speculation but little real
information about their biology, science or
philosophies.  While very aggressive, this race
as seemed to accept a lasting truce with her
surrounding neighbors.

The Alien8 will make a fine addition to any
model rocketry collection and is a wonderful
compliment to the FarScape model rocket kit by
FlisKits.  While this is the same design as the
original Alien8 kit by Shrox Industria, FlisKits
has implemented many subtle changes and
improvements to help the modeler realize the full
potential of this wonderful design.  All
modifications were approved by Shrox himself,
and will make this model a joy to build and to
Changes include the use of silk-screened
waterslide decals, balsawood nose cones, laser
cut light plywood for the main round fins, easier
part preparation, Kevlar enhanced recovery
system and a fin jig to help in attaching fins.
