Pem Tech's Space Ark all the way. Even if the Ark wasn't so cool looking, I'd still give it my nod. To wit, Mr. Pemberton was very gracious to encourage me during my first build thread on this forum. A BT-80 upscale of his Kraken. I had never purchased anything from him before that thread. Mr. Pem is a very cool cat!

Interrogator G. The Space Ark is cool, especially with the silver paint, but airplane rockets are mostly not my thing. And silver paint could be used on the Interrogator G too.

One assumes you are asking because you're undecided. If you haven't already, consider the range of motors available, since they have different size mounts. One offers 38 mm which is easily adapted down to 29, the other offers 29 mm which is easily adapted down to 24. Considering the motors available in each size, your flying field, and your preferences in this regard, that might guide your decision more than a panel of beauty contest judges.

Thank you, that is very kind to say. Your check is in the mail.

Now which one to build, but in all seriousness guys I do wish I had better time management skills. It seems as I get older and at the end of a long week sometimes I just want to sit in the garage have a cup of coffee and just enjoy the morning. I still have the passion for rockets, but learned to never build when your mind is not in it. That's when mistakes happen.

Anybody else have trouble with the link in the OP? I'm getting entirely different webpages sent back depending on whether I use http (rocketry) or https (something related to powerline networking).

This works:
http://www.pembertontechnologies.com/the-space-ark/

This doesn't:
https://www.pembertontechnologies.com/the-space-ark/
I had the same issue. With https (secure server) I got a 404 Not Found error.

I've edited the OP to eliminate the "s." The link should work now.

Thanks. I should have clarified - the rocketry vs powerline networking was the result of just the domain/protocol by itself with no page specified.

Definitely the Interrogator. I love the futuristic lines of both the Interceptor and the Interrogator. I also like 50s/60s designs but the Space Ark (the actual, not the model) seems a bit contrived. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it!
