    Very nice collection....

    I'm extremely jealous Jason. I've been wanting to build some BSD rockets for a while, but it looks like I've waited too long. I sure hope BSD gets going again. I could always clone a Horizon if it becomes necessary.

    Every one of them looks terrific. Excellent Job!

    Very nice collection
    I'm still working on getting a collection big enough to fill up a pic (with HPR birds anywy - if you include mid and low power, I have a decent collection). Also, how do you keep them in such nice shape? Incredible.

    They're not all that pristine..

    Both Thor's have plenty of flight scars on them already, the 3" Sprint has been beat up good and rebuilt as well as the Jaguar..

    The stretched Horizon gets flown allot.. luckily i didn't clear coat it.. So early this spring i just took the decals off and gave it a quick and easy scuff sanding.. and repainted and it looks like new again...

    Good one HR. Jason, those ARE pristine, compared with some of mine (especially my first Initiator). Also, which HPR bird did you forget to haul out?

    They ARE pristine

    They do look good, J... of course, when you spend as much time and effort as you do finishing them, coupled with the wash-downs after the flights, they're gonna stay pretty.
    Don't worry... I won't mention the shower schedule....

    Hey Guys ... I got to meet Jason at the Tripoli Quad-City launch on August 6 and check out his fleet. They ARE that pristine!

    Thanks, Jason, for taking time to chat with me and let me take a look at your fleet.

    I stopped by his table after the MACH1 flight and he was still willing to chat and share some insight into rocketry with a stranger. He is the kind of guy that gives rocketry a good name.

    Thanks Duke, it was a good launch..

    Now i met a half dozen new people at that launch and i'm terrible with names so you'll have to remind me who you are so i'll remember next time.. LOL ..

    Were you the one with the very nice looking camera taking photos..?

    Heck that Mach 1 flight was good entertainment.. LOL i'm just glad i was able to find the pieces so i could attempt to figure out the failure mode and get another one built and ready..

    Sweet! Nice fleet!

    I've got a photo of my latest fleet, in the pics from my Nevada trip. It's not as large though so you can't really see them as well.
