If anyone out there would be willing to help, just send...

    Here's some more photos of my Mark II's with the crayon sharpener nose cones. The one photo of me holding a Mark II next to a photo is to show the original that I modeled from. The photo has Orville's wife and daughter in it with some of his original rockets.

    I will admit I never visualized the Q-bee on a "D" motor. I'll agree with chadrog, "Yikes!" Bet it's pretty cool though. Thanks for sharing.
