I am going to be doing some plastic model conversion projects soon, so I wanted to see some pictures of everyone else PMC rockets...photos of the build, some launch photos would be great!:) I don't own a digital camera, but I don't want to be unfair, I am asking you guys to post some pictures I think it is only fair if I post some myself, so for this build I am going to tkae some pictures with a normal camera and then when I go to get it developed I'll get the pictures put on a CD.

This is a pic of my first PMC, a DML 1/35 scale V2. A great first PMC. A BT60 tube fits almost exactly inside the plastic body tube. I used a 24mm MMT and it flies great on D12-5s. Ready to fly weight is 8 oz.

Here's the inside of the nose cone. A TC60 tube couple is glued into the nose. The TC50 tube coupler is from the first incarnation when I used BT50 tube throughout with not enough shock cord. It took weeks to find both pieces of my elaborately camoflaged wartime V2. Rebuilt in White Sands colors...

Sure--just add one 1/35 scale warhead! As with all V2s, they are nose heavy. Here's a Rocsim file I did--it needed about 1.5 oz of BBs in the nose.

This is a small heavy rocket. People often pick it up and ask what it's made of!

Best advise for anybody wanting to build one--use *A LOT* of shock cord. That's a little space inside for a D12 ejection charge so it's pretty violent...
