Saying hi and here's my Horsefly
I've been lurking around here for a couple of weeks now, but I wanted to post and say hello. I'm "TheRadiator" on the TRF Archive. I took an unplanned hiatus from rocketry as I ran out of room to build and store rockets. A couple of huge spring cleaning campaigns and now I can go back to building and flying.
My first project back was the one I stalled on previously. It's the Horsefly, you can find the plans on the Ye Old Rocket Shoppe site, found under BARCLONE Proven Designs.
I deviated from the plans in using a FlisKits Rhino cone instead of the one resembling a Deuce cone, and I also left off the pointy dowels as I find them annoying to maintain.
Also, here's a photo posing it with a Big Bertha and a Semroc Firefly for size reference.
For those wondering it's an 18mm+18mm, and no, I'm not done painting it yet!
....always in need of good weather to paint....
