Just wanted to post some pics from a long term project I've been working on. This Mercury Atlas is on from Sheri's Hot Rockets (CJS aviation). It took me a while to build due to work and other issues, but I was able to fly it at Red Glare VI this spring. The rocket flew well on an H-128 but only got to about 400 feet. However, on the upside, the flight was very scale looking!

I've posted a review over at EMRR with a few building details. I'll try to post some of the construction photos later.

Craig Z. did a sweet job with the photos so thank him for the pictures!

Nice! Yep, Craig can work magic with that camera! Awesome flight pics!
 
Nice flight! The picture during boost looks awesome. And the picture taken right before burnout is very cool as well. The dark smoke and yellowish-orange flame makes it look interesting!
 
Excellent build & pics! Wish I could afford one..... :(
 
Very nice indeed!!!

I chose Sheri's Sat 1b as my NSL 2009 Upscale Comp prize. I hope someday it will get here so I can start building.:)
