ID:	331911My 42 year old Century Centurion, with fresh paint! Its far from perfect, but im super happy with how it turned out! I did it up to "sorta" look like the one in the 1972 catalog.....I contacted Mark with Stickershock to see about getting the "Centurion decals made, to finish it off! I just cant believe I was 17 years old when I built this, and it still flies just fine! GOD! How fast time goes by!

    That looks great! It's cool that you still have it. I love the Centurion. I built a 3" upscale a few years ago.

    Wow, that looks fantastic!
    My Centurion ended up in a tree after a flight on a C 6-5 on the way too small field I used to fly on in the early 80's
    My only remaining Centuri rockets from then are a delapatated Vector V and a Moonraker. I really wish I still had some of the others from my original Centuri fleet.

    Nice work. It's cool resurrecting old models from our youth. I've got a couple that I'll do some day..

    Very nice!

    I finished up a Semroc clone of the Centurion this summer and she flew great! The only problem was that the nose cone whacked a rock when it landed and there's a weird-shaped dent in it, but other than that mine has been a perfect flier.
