Rob,

Nice set of builds. More Bull Pups with non-traditional paint schemes!! I think they look awesome! :D I have an unpainted Bull Pup on my bench. Now I'm torn on what way to finish it.

What Sand said!!! Besides...Rob is working in parallel...I could never do that as I tend to focus one one thing at a time. Too much cornfuzion his way for me...

6 rockets at once? It might be possible for me, if I had the space. I've only been able to get up to 3 in construction at any one time before my wife started hinting at taking up a little less of our apartment's living room.

For those that only build one at a time, multiple simultaneous constructions allow you to get the glue/epoxy/paint setting/drying on one rocket, then go and work on another, and keep rotating through the different models. Good way to spend a rainy weekend!

Nice looking rockets Rob! As WW said, space would be the biggest issue. When I have been in building frenzies, it is common for me to have 2 -3 models in the queue, however they were seldom if ever exactly in parallel. The epoxy issue is a big one for me, especially when using West. Since most of my rockets are not all that big, I always have leftovers and hence want to have multiple uses lined up. On the down side, I have forgotten minor steps like leaving the rear ring unglued until after the TTW fins are attached. No show stoppers, but steps that require some re-planning.

Cannot compute !! Brain melting , brain melting ......

6 at once ? Not for me and at least not for a while yet. Not that I doubt that each one will get lovingly crafted at the Fisher-Skunk Works but at the moment anything I touch has to have my undivided attention..... besides , the voices tell me to only build one at a time ...... I like the voices .... they are my freinds .....

LOL

rstaff,

I'm always forgetting something in the constructions... so I started using a highlighter to mark off the steps that I've already done when I'm building kits! Of course, this was only after forgetting not one, not two, but THREE launch lugs before painting.

LOL , I trust you had remembered the Motor Mount though ? Fortunately you cant actually launch without the lugs ( can you ?) unlike some other trivial items , like the chute for instance !

Missing lugs, eh? The #2397th use for duct tape ;)

(assuming you keep spares in the range box I guess)
