    Glad to see jump in John.
    Technically, there are round areas that may disqualify it.
    But I like it!

    This is in fact a small world. Just this morning I started design work on a new Estes SciFi kit that will hopefully have all angular sides to it. It will be completely different from my Asteroid Hunter. I might not even have a plastic blow molded nose cone as well, so it will be a true builder kit, if I ever finish the design.

    Glad everyone is doing well! Depending on the number of entries, that will change what type of poll I use.

    Enter it in the contest!

    (The AH would be disqualified for the section of round BT between the nose and body, I think)

    Unless I can secure funds for basswood strips, I won't be able to join in.
    Time is running out on me very fast.

    That image is of the Estes Asteroid Hunter which has been out for around six years now and is now discontinued.

    Don't count on me being there at the finish line on this one. With my deadline already shifted left and Pinewood Derby fast approaching, this one will not be getting the attention that a couple of projects that I am doing with my boy. It will remain on the bench but on a low priority.

    I won't have the time to dedicate to my idea either - too many projects going on at once. At some point I'll pursue it, but not now, in this contest.

    I wish I was as talented at this as you guys. Most of my rockets are much rougher.

    So I've got some paint on it for this weeks trial flight.


    Its put on too much weight for my liking, most of which is towards the rear. Will aim for a stability margin of 1.05 this time with a D24. Rod speed is going to be slower, making me just a bit nervous. If it works out I'll be adding decals and going for a central C6 with 4x B6 cluster.
