    I was just thinking the same thing - have an "identify as many as you can" game of some sort. The full-size (posted) image gets one closer but not all the way.

    Saverio: Wow!

    And what's holding up the egg lofter that's to the left of the red/white Alpha III (and what may be a Constellation) the front row of standing rockets?

    I have large black bins from Costco with the yellow lids filled with rockets in the garage stacked to the ceiling...one car stays outside.
    My closet is full of rockets and have to be careful when I open the doors that they don't all fall on top of me...donated half my clothes.
    An article of clothing will be donated for each additional rocket purchase until I am down to my underwear... Soon I will fly my rockets naked.

    129.JPG 133.JPG 028.JPG 119.JPG 287.JPG 033.JPG I am just stunned by the number of replies ive read to my question, and hope there will be more, as this has been SO FUN! My life became a living hell back in early August when I had to have a triple bypass.....or die. that all went well until I developed PTSD.....yep! PTSD! From there I ended up with an abscess in my left lung, and my brain and ive been on antibiotics via IV ever since. Cant work till an MRI shows that its all gone and I can last longer than 2 hours before having to lay down because im shot. The reason that im sharing this story is that the one thing that has kept me somewhat sane and happy is building some model rocket kits! No matter what happens, Im so thankful to God for my family, friends, and yep....hobbies such as model rocketry! Its hard to believe that ive been a BAR for 10 years! On Feb15th, ill be 61......how fast time goes by....here,s some pics of what ive built and/or finished since ive been sick....it keeps me going......! 028.JPG 119.JPG 287.JPG 033.JPG

    Sorry to hear about your predicament. I pray your recovery is complete in short order.

    Question: Is that a Futaba analog Tx I see in the background in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th pics?
