My Loc Onyx painted with Rustoleum Metallic Silver and Metallic Black.
Flying on an AT F40-7.
So finally, I've finished painting my Onyx, so i decided to upload a few pictures... Also, I've finished filing the 29mm motor retention clips out of 1/16" aluminum sheet. Due to its amazing color scheme, I call it the "maniacal zebra," and I plan to add Red Arrow Hobbies 12" and 18" payload bays to fit a keychain camera. I'll keep uploading pictures as the build runs along.
Here's some for starters.

Here is mine. It's my first rocket in about 14 years.
This is my Onyx who went AWOL on it's maiden voyage on an F40.
Very nice--you have my condolences. The Onyx is a great classic. I lost mine on a maiden flight in "92. It appears that it is a difficult rocket to find--especially in tall grass. I have been fighting the urge to replace it for many years--I am about to give in and buy another--I really miss my Onyx.
Here is my Son's Onyx heading up on a F?FJ. Fun flight and awesome rocket.
I started construction on it back in 1997.
I finally flew it this year on a K 1100 from 1998.
There were suppose to be three I 200 but they never lit.
Just out of curiosity, JD. How long is the body tube of your 2XL Onyx...28"?
I added 4" to my Loc Onyx so...... 2X of that + a bit more for stability

Here is my Onyx.
Painted with Duplicolor Mirage Purple/Green on nosecone and fins, and Mirage Ice on the body tube.
That's a good looking rocket. Nice job.
I just finished my Onyx build.

Applied decal to my Onyx today, I renamed it whiplash. (It can fit a 6 grain motor) :
My sister is the model:
And another picture:
One of the fins is Carbon Fibered, the other 2 are just coated in epoxy and sanded.
My Onyx. It has a 38mm motor mount and 1/4" TTW fins.
How about a slightly stretched, glassed fin can, zipperless Onyx designed around a 29/240 case? I have said it many time before, I love the Onyx.
Here is Onyx; "Das Fliegenschwein"!
