    Nah, running out of room.:D
    BTW, your post on land speed record cars gave me an idea.
    How about Blurzz type LSR scale models scooting on the ground instead of flying?
    Less design constraints. I might order a Blurzz set to see how it's designed and guided.
    In the meantime, some eye candy:

    If misaligned properly it would make a nice double helix smoke trail...:cool:

    you could name the right side Watson and the left side Crick!

    I love the term "misaligned properly"!

    I believe this is an F-104 Starfighter fuselage? I wonder if it still has the original downward ejecting seat?

    This looks very similar to something I slapped together back in the day using a couple of broken Sizzler 1906's. Basically glued the two rockets together with a 1/2" balsa spacer between the tubes. Only ever flew it on A8-3's but it flew well. I got the idea after building the Estes Blackhawk.

    Neat looking cluster. Think I will need one also.
