I have just gotten started back into the hobby .... my fleet is very small at the moment but will grow considerably by the time good weather returns to North Central Ohio ... lol

In addition to the Big Bertha that is complete ... I also have a Mosquito built and ready for paint ... Kits on the shelf include; Exo-Skell, Venus Probe, Mongoose and I have a Aerobee 300 coming from Thrustline !!!

I will be adding pics into this thread as I get my rockets done. I am quite impressed with some of the "Fleet" photos I've seen in the forum ... jealous I guess ... hahaha

great start!!

don't waste too much time painting the mosquito, they don't stick around long. You will, however, enjoy launching the Bertha over and over again!

ahh ... building and painting are half of the fun for me ... if these things get lost or broken ... well we'll just consider those sacrafices to the rocket gods !

The Mongoose is fun. I lost mine on a C6-C6 stage.

i got my misquito back 12 times before it floated away into the abyss! (the abyss being a huge tree surrounded by thorn bushes upstate...)

And the rest of my growing fleet !

L to R

Exoskell, Snapshot, Thrustline clone of Estes Aerobee 300 (almost finished), Mongoose, Big Bertha, Mosquito, and a D engine powered Venus Probe underway and laying down in front.

I have to finish the Aerobee and the Venus Probe .... the waiting are a 3D Powered Fat Boy, a Thrustline Mighty Mick, and I have a Thrustline K27 Honest John coming in the mail !!!

That Mosquito looks great!
I don't think I would fly that one. I'd have to build another one to fly. Great job.

So I noticed that you guys like pictures, so here's a couple shots of our fleet on their new mounting rack.

#### Aerobee300

Awesome fleet Chr$!!!!! Love that rocket rack too .... I've been wondering what I'll do with all of these things ... you may have just answered that question for me !!! Thanx !!! #### wwattles ##### Well-Known Member Chr$,

Are those pictures taken looking up or down? I'm trying to see if those rockets are horizontal, sticking out near the ceiling, or vertical, rising up near a baseboard...

Looks to me like they are horizontal with the ceiling .... see the fan blade and the recessed lighting ....

Uhh...

Arobee 300

That would be a lawn dart

Catastrophe

lol .... OK ... lawn dart ... basically same end result !!!

So Chr$, I'm guessing you haven't sprung for one of Jim's Tres or Deuce rockets yet, since they wouldn't fit onto your display rack? WW #### Chr$

I actually bought a Duece's Wild and an ACME Spitfire from "Just Rockets", a Nevada vendor who comes to our launches. The Spitfire is on the build table and the Duece is for my son who will build it this april for the boy scout camporee rocket launch. I will have to add another row of pegs anyway since there are still about 15 rockets scattered about the house NOT on the existing racks.
