    If there's a gallery for this one, I couldn't find it. So...

    I picked this up at Schaeffer's in St. Louis. It took me so long between building and finishing that I forgot it was Russian and painted it in US colors... so I mixed and matched decals and called it good.

    It's my first multi-stage rocket. I've only flown it twice, but it flew well both times, on a Quest B6-0 to Estes A8-5 combo. I added a launch lug to allow the upper stage to fly alone, but so far have not launched it that way.
