    I got a mark 4 square rocket recently, and just started building it. I decided to crease a build thread, because why not. Also, is New Way even in business anymore? Their website seems to have been partially down and not updated for several years, and almost anywhere I can find is out of their models. (eRockets has some, that's where I got mine)

    ERockets is my go to vendor for NewWay models. They just released a new one, the Big Bessie.
    And you may want to fill the spirals on the tube (if they are deep) ahead of time.

    Just started on my BB build the other day.
    Love the NewWay kits. Lots of small extras that other kit makers don't give you.
    Did I mention that I like the unusual?
    Laters.

    I believe they no longer sell direct. They are available from eRockets. They also used to be available from eBAY and Apogee, but Apogee shows out of stock and I could not find them on eBAY tonight

    I don't mind if the spirals are deep. I personally don't go for perfect looks, I go for "good from the launch button".

    Yes, you did mention you like unusual rockets. It says so in your forum signature.

    Haven't done anything for a while as it was put to the side when we had some guests over for dinner, and I promptly forgot about it, and only just remembered that I had this rocket which needed (fun) building yesterday. IMG_2240.JPG ^ (Square!) launch lug on. Nice little detail of them to make it like that. IMG_2241.JPG
    ^end view of launch lug.
