While TRF was down, I was using rsim, and thinking about making more kits... A website with ONE KIT for sale wouldent be all that impressive, would it?:eek:


Well, heres something more... It looks really cool IMHO... Kevlar shock cord, 22" nylon chute, Estes (or maybe Fliskits, depending on whether or not I can buy the neccesary parts in bulk... It would be nice to get the parts from Fliskits...:) ) tubes and transition, and a 24MM motor mount.

The nose cone is an Estes "Big Bertha" style cone, followed by a bit of BT60, with a transition down to a BT55. It has oversize fins with BT20s as standoffs for the fins. There are also more BT20s on the tips of the fins...

I guess ill just let the pics speak for themselves!:D

Heres the rear-view...


Do you think I should cut out the fins, or leave that for the maker of the model? I think it should be left to the modeler... Kinda like Fliskits:)

Yeah, actually I did... I took one look at that Fliskits "D Nelson Tomahawk", and decided I wanted to make something like that for personal use. Then it grew another fin, 4 more tubes, different shaped fins, different sized body tubes, and eventually into something that I said "hey, I could make a few bucks selling this sucker!".:D

What do you think I should charge for it? Im not very good at pricing things...

$20?:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

I dont know... Its going to have a nylon chute, Kevlar shock cord ETC. I like the really nice components, and I think other people do too.

What do you think a fair price would be for a kit like this?:confused:

I already have a 2X (semi) upscale in the planning phase...:D ;)

LOC 3" upper tube, 2.56" lower tube, 1.5" side pods and fins....:D

That proabably wont be kitted, though, for a long time, if at all.

But if your kits are being upscaled, THAT is something to be proud of....:D ;) Jim Flisk knows ALLLLLL about that one....:D ;) Just look in any Sport Rocketry...;) ;)
