Yep I plan to repair it , and I have. I ripped all the fins out , cleaned up the bodytube , made some new fins from 3mm ply , cleaned up the nosecone , and stuck new 5mm MDF centering rings with 4x24mm engine tubes This thing should rock !!

Did I mention this thing will haul a$$? Im in the process of scratch building on of these , possibly with a 29mm/38mm mmt. But the scratch will be the same as the estes Version , so if I go with a 38mm I can only go up to something like a 1grain Pro38? -Karl #### Karl ##### Well-Known Member TRF Supporter Heres some pics of what it looks like after the repair job The painted lite ply fins -Karl #### Karl ##### Well-Known Member TRF Supporter Centering rings , they look a little messy but they arnt finished yet -Karl #### Karl ##### Well-Known Member TRF Supporter And finaly accros the decal -Karl #### fastfreddie ##### Well-Known Member Did I mention this thing will haul a$$ ?

I built mine with a 29mm mount, haven't had the nads to put an F20 in it yet. I flew it today on a 24mm E18 AT motor and it ROCKED! The Estes D12 just isn't any fun after that.

On that note, you should see the 5.5" upscale I built. The I218-R puts 'er about 1500 feet.
