    Received my order for "King Tut's Pyramid", "Satellite Killer", "Little Bucky Jones" and some misc centering rings. Primered V2 and started painting " Asteroid Hunter". Started build on Quest "Striker AGM" and also started building this in Rocksim.

    Widened my rocket shelf and put a lip on the edge so APRO Lander II no longer needs to live on my workbench. Should have room for several rockets to stand there.

    Assembled my mid size Macklin Fin alignment jig. The mid size can go up to just over 4” diameter. seems to be the perfect size for most of the rockets I plan to build in the near future.

    Fin repairs on some of my older well used projects...4" upscale Fatboy, Loc IV, a replacement nosecone on my upscale Astrobee 1500 (thanks Gordon).
    Found some partly finished low power stuff I did some work on...Fliskit Tres, Aerodactyl two stager.
    The easy stuff.

    Looked over that MadCow Nike Apache...(black friday sale kit)......beautiful FG work, but boy ........ this thing is going to be heavy.
    Parts inc the fins are weighty. Put it all back in the box for now.

    We got two categories of pilots around here. We got your prime pilots that get all the hot planes, and we got your pud-knockers who DREAM about getting the hot planes.
    Now what are you two pud-knockers gonna have?... Huh?”

    Finished the four 3" Crayon scratch builds. Really the only thing left on them is rail buttons, so the four pluse the other 5 or 6 rockets that need them. Eventually I will make multicolor 30" chutes for each of them (red, yellow and blue of course the primary colors). Sims say a 18" chute is borderline and a 24" recommended, but with a JLCR, I will use 30-inchers for nice soft landings.

    Glued all the fins together for my PS2 Nike Smoke. Used CA to hold them together then hit all the seams with Plasti-Stuct Plastiweld.

    While the Tarc kids were buzzing about trying to get their flights in, a couple mentors from HARA and I had a Mammoth party!

    Try and picture 2 HD 808 cameras, 2 chute releases, 2 altimeter 2's, and a T3 GPS tracker flying in three 15$ rockets. It was great

    Using a calibrated Mk1 eyeball and an aluminum sanding bar, I beveled the leading edges of my Mongoose 38 fins. Will do the tips and trailing edges after I decide if this one will be per OEM design or modified.

    Flew to Indy for business for a week. Fearing I would miss my rockets to much, I brought their brains along. I plan on practicing field programming and getting to know the computer software.

    Built an M685 moonburner for my Mongoose 75. Last flown in March of 2016, it's dusted off for next weekends minimum diameter madness. I'm also flying my Blackhawk 54 on a K375 dual thrust. Spent a couple of days getting the Mongoose 54 rebuilt, but when I weighed it and ran a OR simulation with the Loki L2050, I decided that 154 fps off the rod and 60 gees might be asking too much for a rocket with only one flight on it. I'm gonna work my way up to that monster.

    Build the chute compartment for my Big Daddy, shaped the fins, cut CRs for the MT and MT slider. Too cold to paint the bBertha and Alpha and can't start on the BBertha yet!
    Instructions are just another man's opinion...

    Well, yesterday I dove into a bunker to escape an angry and very out-of-control bi-prop rocket, saw it streak into the ground a few hundred feet away under full power, and witnessed a beautiful fireball rise up out of the desert. 30 seconds later, the nose cone landed like 6 feet away from me only slowed by a tiny drogue. Yup, the rocket tried to kill me in two different ways. I love this hobby

    Indy!? I would’ve let you flew at my house! Shocking that TSA didn’t question you - they definitely would have if you had AV bay or rocket tubes lol.

    Picked up my LOC Nano Magg from my shipping depot. (Final piece of my Wildman BF order) I'm about to weigh the parts and cobble together a RockSim file.
    Ogled my 75mm CTI 2G casing. Also read the manual for the RRC3. Nice, simple altimeter.
    I really need to get started with OpenRocket so maybe this will be the one.

    If I get either done, I'll upload them. It's a super simple rocket and I am building it mostly stock.
    Buttons instead of lug, replacing elastic "shock cord" and using an eye bolt instead of a screw-eye for the bulkhead.
    No stupid big motors or CF etc. for this one.

    There is a theory that states that if anyone figures out why the universe is for or why it is here, it will suddenly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarrely inexplicable.
    There is another theory that says this may have already happened...
