Oh, to be wealthy. "Drop everything Honey, we're going half way around the world to watch a model rocket go up." Seriously, I'd be there if I could.Time for some thread necro... The Nike is flying again in 2023, this time it's on an R (yes R) motor...

Get your travel on.
It's a pic I found googling to show an example of a real Nike-Smoke model.George, is that a Cosmodrome kit?
Think I recognize the nosecone. Did my L-1 with that rocket 20 yrs. ago.
It was claimed to be a "1:1" model . . . That "opened the door to comparison" . . . It is NOT "1:1", as illustrated by the data I and George posted . . . Simple facts.
You're both right. Dave, you have earned a reputation for prickliness, and Justin I think you're responding to that reputation more than to what Dave wrote this time.You have a pattern on this prickly behavior on TRF, this isn't a one off, this your MO, and I called you out on it, deal with it...
A discussion on what constitutes a "scale" rockets is better off in the scale section of the forum. Maybe the moderators will move the posts from this thread to a new one. I might even chime in there, but on this thread, it would be nice to stay on topic. Anyway I am excited to see more pictures and learn more about this rocket, the team and the club in New Zealand.Would you scale purists please bugger off and create your own thread instead of pissing on this one?
