SpaceX's Falcon 9 modroc gets a fat nose

SpaceX's just released their latest Falcon 9 model rocket kit: Falcon 9 and Fairing Flying Model Rocket Kit. It's unclear whether the body tube is the same size as its predecessor but this one features their operational payload section and flies on Estes 24mm motors (or AT, CTI for that matter).

I like the nose section but this will not be that much different than their previous kit. I'm holding out for the version that comes with landing legs...or maybe the Falcon 9 Heavy.
