    Hey folks, the weather here on the East coast hasn’t been great for flying anything but I’ve been busy building my fleet to commemorate what Neil Armstrong and NASA flew on the journey from the Earth to the Moon...
    My plan is to build and fly the rockets and craft that led up to Apollo 11’s historic lunar mission...
    So far, the new Estes Little Joe 1(actually it looks more like LJ5), the Mercury Redstone, and Gemini 8 are starting to come together...
    Here’s a few pictures of where I’m at right now... IMG_2065.jpg IMG_2066.jpg IMG_2067.jpg
    Next up will be the X-15 Rocket glider from Frank Burke at Dynasoar and the Estes Little Joe II...

    Thanks, the Gemini titan is really my first ever scratch build, and I’m not entirely confident with the fin group but it will fly.... Next up is the Little Joe II!
