......And the shipping took so long, you forgot what you were planning to build? This 2-Day Delivery took just over a month to get here.

Is that a super long snap ring motor case? Whoa, whatever this is, it looks wild.

That's not for just one rocket, is it? If it is I want to see it. :)

The single body tube was extra, the rest is all one rocket (see above)

Ah, cool. I presume there will be more/larger fins, right?

I will withhold my obvious "how can that possibly be stable" question for the moment. ;)

Over 2 CAL actually - flight tested without boosters MoonShot I and II, like it was shot from a rifle.

I'll be curious to see how you do the dropping mechanism, are you doing a build thread?

I have an order from Mach 1 sitting in a USPS distribution center now. Has not moved in a week. Last time this happened it took a month (to the day) to receive... arg!

That's a lot of $$ and nice parts for a "WTF was I thinking" moment! :)

I had a Mach 1 order do that back in July, but after it sat for the week, I filed a "Where's my stuff?" tracker, and it miraculously started moving again. Might be worth a shot, if you haven't already!

I've got an order from Bellevue Hobbies that normally takes a long time to arrive, but with the postal issues I expect I won't see it until maybe Halloween or so. Which was expected, so I'm not cranky about it - the retirement deals were too good to pass up.
