    McCoy's Micro Wonder Works Finished Rockets.

    Well since there is a space I'll be happy to use it to show off the finished line of MMWW micro rockets that are just about all available as a one page plan as a FREE download to everyone over on the Micro Maxx Rockets Yahoo group.

    I'll start at the beginning 1999 and work my way all the way through this year. Some are Scale, some are Sport, some are competition, lots are Odd-Rocs, many are classics.

    Next 8 rockets are 1/8A competition models. By the end of 2001 MMWW had created at least one Competition rocket for each NAR event except Payload and Eggloft.
    Starting with 1/8thA Flex Wing Gliders. All my Micro Rockets are Scratch Built using mostly "Totally Tubular" T2, T2+ T3, T4 & T5 craft tubing Balsa or Basswood home turned Nose Cones and Transitions with all kinds of materials as fin stock. Light 60 & 110lb Card-stock, .005", .010" & .015" Wafer Glass (very thin G10). 1/64th & 3/64th 3-ply plywood, .020", 1/32" & 1/16" Balsa. 1/32" Basswood as Fin Stock. Shock lines are 70 - 90lb Kevlar in 30-36" lengths. Recovery for most micros is done by 1/4" to 3/4" Wadding/Streamers of Military grade Teflon tape.
    Most of the competative PD & SD rocket Bodies are Tracing Vellum.
    As time went along I started using some of Fliskit's outstanding turned nosecones & transitions mostly in T3 (.375") diameter.

    Models 234 3x Down-Scale T4 Micro Der Red Max (4-fin) and Summer & Winter Camo Der Red Max- B & C with Diorama Launcher just for fun. These Der Red Max Rockets are modeled after the back page of the original kit instructions. Next a 3X Down-Scale Micro Mars Snooper, minimum diameter micro Nova Payloader, micro X-Ray Payloader, Micro Warp-II 2 Stage, Hercules 2-Stage, & First attempt at a T4 Sky-Dart Glider, I would later add a 10.5mm and 13mm booster to these Heavy Gliders.
    The 2-Stagers do in fact stage, before Quest intoduced the MMX-II-NE, I crated my own boosters by carefully removing the ejection charge.

    I soon discovered no matter how light I attempted to make these T4 (.448") diameter SkyDarts they were still to heavy to fly well on a single Micro Maxx motor.
    I solved this problem by designing two different Boosters. One a 10.5mm A2-0, and Second a 13mm booster to fly on A10-0's. Both give these Micro SkyDarts plenty of altitude and glide time. Next MM 241 a Night flying Odd-Roc "Assateague Litehouse", then MM 242 Micro Frosty the Snowman. MM 243 is a 3x Down Scale Explorer Aquarius. The hardest part was hand carving the Nose section. MM 244 has to be one of my personal favorites a 4x downscale Interceptor & display booster
    this minimum diameter T2+ rocket flies Great on MMX-1 or MMX-II motors. MM 245 also a minimum diameter Starship Vega. MM 246: T2+ Deep Space Transport. This model using a Basswood Turned Honest John Nosecone & T2 size mock boosters.
    More finished Micro Rockets later

    Thanks for posting these. Great stuff. I dare say that you might have the largest fleet that fits in the smallest amount of space.

    For a subset of the images you posted the full-sized images won't come up (a problem I've had with a lot of your older posted pictures; I have no idea what the problem might be). In the last post, for instance, the Explorer Aquarius and the Interceptor won't come up. The view counts for those two are at zero (based on the tooltip that pops up when you rest the cursor on the thumbnails), so I might not be the only one having the problem.
    Recently completed: Starship Avalon / in progress: Accur8 Trajector and Ragnarok Orbital Interceptor / planning: Alcubierre and Plasma Dart 2

    Yes Neil: When we started posting photo's on TRF-1 we had to keep them below 100kb each. I've known about this problem for awhile but with all the pics in my files it's hard to spend the time to correct them all. I've taken the last 4 days to resize all my Micro-Maxx static photos. All the 0 view pics have been replaced in the posts above and we shouldn't have this problem again in static micro maxx photo' any way. I'll keep working on resizing all pics in my photo library but that will take some time.

    Lets see we left off with MM 247 an Odd-Roc "Bottle Rocket", MM 248 is a 2-motor cluster Odd-Roc of the same general type. MM 249 is the first in a series of 1:200 scale PMCs from the "Man in Space" collection the tiny Mercury-Redstone. MM 250 is a Mercury-Atlas, and MM 251 is the Gemini-Titan. MM 252 is a 1:130th X-15 PMC that won 4th place at Naram-46. MM 253 is a 1: 119 scale V-2, MM 254 is a 1:72nd PMC of the Bell-X1, Last in this set is the 1:200 LEM PMC.

    Next up MM 265a & B are a couple All Card Stock Micro powered Mono Copters which make Outstanding Demo flights from a special 2" long .049" dia Launch rod.
    Next is a all Card Stock 5.25" Christmas Tree with stand really makes a wonderful holiday Centerpiece and December Odd-Roc launch fun. Like wise MM 267 another Christmas theme Odd-Roc Candle Stick w. Holder always gets attention on the field or the table. MM 268 back to classic down scales a 3x downscale of the Alien Space Probe. MM 269 is a 1:144th scale LEM from a 3-D12 Clustered 1:144 scale Saturn-V PMC. this LEM like the 200th scale sports a clear .020" lexan disc drag fin for stable flights to about 40feet. MM 270a & b are Micro Tri-ny FO saucers model a being 1/32" basswood while b is all 110lb card stock. Both get about the same 25feet flights. MM 271 is another "Sky-Writing" Odd-Roc full scale Pencil. No there is nothing from a real pencil about it, it's all T2+, Basswood nose and a little metallic vinyl. MM 272a-h is my "Sky-Writing" full scale Box of Crayons including the custom made box. Each individual crayon can fly on it own or in two 4 rocket clusters from a Launcher Box shaped like the storage box just a 1/2" deeper. MM 273 is another 3x down-scale of a favorite Centuri rocket the ESS Raven. This Raven like the original has lots of card stock parts. MM 274 is my Micro Bertha. I never had a big Bertha back in the day so this a my micro 3x downscale. Last on this page is MM 275 a Micro True Scale model I just had to do, Spaceship ONE. With a lot of Nose weight it still flies really well, So well in fact I've had to replace the Nose cone twice now do to snapped 70lb kevlar shock lines. but it really does fly beautifully.

    Continuing in True Scale mode MM 276 a 1:26.8149 Scale AGM-12b Bullpup. Then it was time to do a little experimenting to determine the optimum Body tube size to Scale Micros. MM 277, MM 278 & MM 279 are all True Scale Nike-Smokes (56.7186, 44.0, & 36.8715 scales). As it turns out MM 278 had the best Detail to performance from this point on Most of my Micro Scale projects are in this Scale based on T3 (.375") stock tubing. Next MM 280 is a 36.8715 Scale Nike-Apache. Then a 10.0559 Scale T4 Arcas. MM 282 is a minimum diameter T2+ (.281") 23.1316 Asp. MM 283 is a Late issue Quest Critical Mass LPB RTF rocket that actually flies pretty well. MM 284 Another Late Quest LPB of the Little Joe-II, which need a little reworking after I crushed it in my van door after it's first wobbly flight.

    I skipped over the first 8 original Quest LPB's (Little Plastic Bricks) since they are not part of McCoy's Micro Wonder Works other then being the inspiration that started it all. MM 283 & MM 284 are included here only as place holders in my fleet numbering system.

    Next Up MM 285 was an experiment to see how long a Micro Maxx rocket I could get to fly. I call it the ELE_1(Extreme Length Experiment Superroc) Consisting of 2 34" lengths of T2+ tubing & one T2 tube the overall length of this rocket is 103", with balsa Nosecone, .010" waferglass fins, 6 ft of 70lb kevlar shock line and 1/2" x 6" teflon tape Wadding streamer the completed rocket lift off weight was 18. 5g. Launching the beast required standing at the launcher for vertical support until the countdown reached T-1, flight altitude reached a decent 25feet and the rocket Back-slide glides very well, reaching about 100yds from the launcher . MM 286 a 144th Scale PMC F-104G, MM 287 a 144th PMC F16XL, MM 288 are Micro Powered Parasol's, another sort of Odd-Roc recovery anyway. MM 289a, is a Micro Flyin Jenny BG. while MM 289b - is the Red Baron Bi-wing BG. MM 290 a 1:142.4387 Scale Scout-B, and last for this post a pair of Fuzzy Dice (another Art Applewhite Qubit) I altered quite a bit. The Dice do not fly connected gather fly individually on MMX-1 or MMX-II motors.

    Continuing with Art Applywhite "Qubit" Card-stock saucers MM 292 is the Scimitar Qubit, MM 293 it the "Stealth Qubit". Both are fine & funny little flying gizmos. One of Estes Standard kits that makes a wonderful Micro Maxx rear ejection recovery rocket is the Mosquito. MM294a-d are four of these fun little kits I've been flying since 2004. Looking for an easy to build glider I tried MM 295 that I named the "Bumble Flee" a fairly large glider that has never really separated well in the field. Glides like all gee wiz but can't seem to get beyond the booster/streamer causing lots of "Red Baron" flights. MM 296 is a 3X down-scale of the 70's Centuri Vulcan card-stock rocket. this little jewel flies as well as it's full size original. Last rocket for this post is a 2.17 down-scale of Estes Astron Sprint (streamer duration) models. This T4 (.448") dia. model Jumps off the pad with it's Micro Pop Lug getting very high flights over 220feet. The Oval fins and tapered conical boattail make this model a very interesting rocket to build and fly.

    MM 298 is the only Goonie Micro I've created "Micro Missile Toe" just seem appropriate. This Little Odd-Roc was a favorite of mine from back in the day just had to down-scale it for Micro motors. MM 299 is another favorite from the good old days and the Glider I got my first qualified flight in competition. the Micro Scissor Wing Transport was indeed a challenge to build but worked out fairly well. As a Glider our micro version doesn't have the glide time of the larger original but is enough to make it worth building and flying. MM 300 is one of my prouder moments. Robert Edmonds of Edmonds Aerospace engineers is a valued club member and has always had lots of neat and Unusual gliders presented. I believe it was in 2003 that the Ecee RG glider series was introduced, and I had to have all the different scales, 10.5mm, 13mm, 18mm and 24mm motor mounts were how that were sized. I ask if He would be upset if I down-scaled it to Micro Maxx power and He was perfectly fine with it though he doubted it would be a very good micro glider. To everyone's surprise this small RG is a very good performer, frequently flown at
    Scout & School demo's across the DMV. MM 301 is an example of a Lager (13") Slide wing RG that wasn't a success. While it boost OK to about 25feet it's glide times never were very good at all. Sometimes Smaller is better. MM 302 is another adapted Down-Scale Odd-Roc from Peter Away the Micro Zvezdotchka ACM is my version of his bunny (Anti Carrot Missile). MM 303 is as one might guess the target of the Zvezdotchka ACM a Carrot Odd-Roc just for fun. MM 304 gets us back into down-scale mode with a 4.3x down-scale of the National Aerospace Plane. this little T4 size micro flys wonderfully to over 120feet recovering on a small 1/2" x 9" yellow teflon streamer/wadding. Last Model for this post MM 305 is our 3.5x down-scale of the "Blue Bird Zero" This T3 size rocket measures over 11.5" in length with a lift off mass of only 9.6g. As with all long thin rocket this model has a tendency to "back slide glide" trailing it's 3/4" x 18" red teflon wadding/streamer.

    MM 306 & 307 are real Moldie Oldies from the Golden age of rocketry. MM 306 is a T4 down-scale of Estes Kit K31 Star Blazer-1. MM 307 T4 down-scale of Estes Kit #0831 Star Blazer-II. MM 308 is my Tiniest Crayon, this minimum diameter x 2.3125" long rocket. Yes it's flown twice with a 1/4" x 10" yellow Wadding/Streamer recovery. The Next two are Odd-Rocs MM 309a Whirlygig and MM Whirlygig-b is a canted two motor cluster. These Whirlygigs spin-up and flutter down. MM 310a1 is an interesting Spin Ring Thing down-scales. MM 310a1 was my first attempt at this 8- 60deg. canted 1/32" basswood fin, two motor cluster which worked OK but seemed a bit on the heavy side so MM 301a2 used .005" Waferglass fins. MM-310b is a single motor with the same .005" waferglass canted fins. All three of these little rocket really boost very high, turn over and spin in pretty fast. CAUTION- These one or two motor Spin Ring Things should NEVER be Up-Scaled larger then 13mm motors as the rocket comes in just way to fast without some sort of additional recovery system. MM 311 is another Tiny rocket I named the "No-See EM" which is only 2.0" tall. This little 4 fined rocket is so quick I have yet to be able to get a clear lift-off shot of it.
