    I do not see the legs on this model. I imagine SpaceX ordered production of these before legs were attached. Hopefully they will do an update. That being said I’m only going by the picture on the box and anyone can update us as soon as their model arrives.

    I launched it on a D engine and it flew very powerfully, straight and high. Impressive overall. The legs are stick-on decals but add to the model’s “mystique”. Several people at the launch asked about the “legs”.
