    Been thinking about this project lately, many thanks for the update! I can't wait for the celebratory launch and triumphant return of my 40 year old warhorse!

    Slowly but surely...another update. Styrene parts were completed but I didnt feel confident they would hold up too well. So they will be printed in ABS or PLA once finalized.

    This is great. According to my Flight Log, the original wings came off during the rocket's first flight on Tuesday evening, July 22, 1980 at 800 pm in Mooresville, Indiana. It hasn't had them since! :) Those are going to be awesome.
