One less now, RIP Vagabond.....
I lost count. I think a more accurate question is how many years would take me to build my rocket collection. At this count, I’m going on 50 years.
After a ten+ year break from rocketry I have just one surviving rocket. It's an Estes, but not sure which one as I didn't use the stock decals. I did just order some rockets this weekend for the first time in a while !
30 total. 3 in sick bay. A few mid power rockets, mostly just low power. I don't have a lot of money and space to build big stuff.
Without counting, I'd say 60 in flight-ready condition, approximately 120 in sick bay, and 500+ still in the bag/box
Close to 200 built. 80 in the build pile.
Four. I has four.
Used to has more, but I has four.
Can you tell I'm feeling a bit deprived, here? Next Christmas, I will have been flying rockets, off and on, for 50 years. Need more rockets. Need bigger rockets. Need more, bigger rockets!
One more than I need, one less then I should have!
That photo has 90...most of them flight ready and a few yet to be painted...
I’m currently working on Estes Hornet with upscale and downscale siblings...
All still needing paint.
I thought I posted this link on this thread, but I guess not. My collection from a few years ago, about 70 or 80 have been added since.
Two still needing paint. An Astra from Quest and a Mark 4 from New Way.
My partner in rocketry has a mini mean machine needing slight repairs and a mini fat boy that's been demoted to windowsill. Due to a CATO, the entire motor mount except for the upper centering ring was blasted out and about 1 cm square is missing from the upper corner of the "F" fin.
This many. A few more on the way.
Nice collection photos - Wm Reid, nosecone & MIFFRocket
Thanks...it started with an Estes patriot we painted white with Curious George decals and a Big Bertha painted yellow called the big banana for my then three year old daughter who is now 14 (in the photo). All my kids have helped me and have contributed to the fleet over the years...
I’m trying to work on my technique and build higher quality ships in an effort to slow construction...my wife is incredibly supportive and takes it all in stride [emoji6]
It’s my joy I share with my kids...so much fun!
Here’s some. I’m always building at a slow place.
One more than I should have, one less than I need!!
room for just one more...i swear
