The seamline on the rocket can be seen in this photo. It's very minimal and makes for easy cleaning!! In the top rocket you can see the deepened groove I engineered to allow the cross brace to embed itself into the rocket.
update july 2012:Re-tooling nearing complete. Just need to tidy the rockets up & add styrene details:
Welcome BTTF Forum users!!!
I am a gigantic fan of the BTTF films. I was in grade school when the first film came out. I was in los angeles during the filming of BTTF2 and 3 and had an opportunity to visit the Hill Valley set. I also had an opportunity to visit the set during filming some of BTTF3 (pick-up shots). These experiences cemented my fandom and love for Back to the future!

This photo shows the Pitbull in its modest beginning stages in 1998. Before I knew computer graphics programs. I had drafted the artwork!! So old fashioned!!
Because of the sheer volume of resin material for the underside details and the outsourcing for producing the decks, machining the bevels, the massive surface areas of the vinyl grahics outsourcing, the FULLSIZE decks are very costly and time-consuming to produce through three different companies. Here's pricing for the FULLSIZE decks (very rare collector items).
Prices do not include shipping/handing.
THE MATTEL/MARTY: $265 Includes fullsize deck, top and bottom vinyl graphics, full set of resin underside details. The marty BOARD is slightly more because it requires a separate kickboard.
NO TECH: $245 Includes fullsize deck, top and bottom vinyl graphics, full set of resin underside details.
RISING SUN: $245 Includes fullsize deck, top and bottom vinyl graphics, full set of resin underside details.
PITBULL: $395 This kit requires three times the amount of resin because of the rocket engines, clamps, top details etc...... The kit includes the laser cut deck, pitbull vinyl decal, full set of resin detail parts.
ODD MAN OUT: $245 Includes fullsize deck, top and bottom vinyl graphics, full set of resin underside details.
