    Miss Miikteag is the half names of my two daughters Mikalah & Teagan. They wanted me to dedicate that rocket to them in hot pink but I drew the line when it came to the color.
    I got my level 1 and first dual deploy with that rocket so I guess they brought me good luck.

    That's really cool! I think you should have gone with the hot pink, though. :D

    Today was garage cleaning day, so while the rockets were out, I got a group shot. It was getting kind of dark, so the picture isn't very good, but it's probably the only one I'll ever take. From left to right ...

    TooCarbYen 4"x3" two-stager. The sustainer is new.

    FourCarbYen 4"x4" two-stager. Sustainer is also new.

    Nathan II two-stager (named for my nephew). 15 or so great flights on this 3" rocket. The last one was a K630 to K160. Really nice flight to about 15K.

    Bi-Polar (red rocket with no cone). Started life as a two-stage booster. Has lawndarted 3 times and usually cones off the pad, but has had some great flights too. You just never know....

    Utility 3" rocket made from previously crashed parts. Flies great though. Last flight was to 16K on an L1080.

    KesTreLite 2" rocket. Holds current Tripoli K record (29,266 feet).

    54mm Big Daddy - Has about 6 flights on J motors.

    29mm Big Daddy - Has at least 50 flights on F and G motors (and a couple of H motors).

    29mm Straight Arrow. Inappropriate name since it (and similar designs) never flew straight. I kept trying to fly it on F10's and finally gave up.

    Well, that's the fleet.

    Jim

    Yes and no. It's an artifact that you can't see the aluminum tip on the cone, but it is a bit rounded (the normal VK shape I think).

    From left to right:
    Back row: Semroc Point, Estes Viking, Estes Wizard, Semroc Swift Boost Glider, Semroc Tau Zero, Quest Viper, Quest Mean Green, Estes Blue Ninja (technically, my son's rocket.)

    Gone is the BatRock (accepted by the sky gods)
    Also not pictured is a Quest Future Launch Vehicle
    (Built, flown and subsequently destroyed by an unfortunate run-in with some tarmac while under power.)

    Also visible: Lava Lamp, Tea Garden Photos, Ravenclaw House Banner.

    Here are mine and my daughter's rockets. Not an organized display, but there you go. US Tog and Trident I (on the floor with nosecone inside tube) in the works, Mean Machine waiting repairs. The rest are flyable.

    Family is off to see the in-laws, which gave me a free day to organize the fleet, and go for a group photo

    After several hours, I have come to realize my wife is right... my "fleet" is overflowing. I opted to just pull out the Rockets with a diameter of 7.5" or greater for a group shot.


    [​IMG]

    From left to right: 7.5" / 10ft Patriot | 10" / 9.5ft Thunderbird | 11.5" /16ft Harpoon | 9.25" / 18ft Iris | 7.5" / 13ft Nuclear Sledgehammer

    For perspective, I put a 4 Grain Cesaroni Pro150 in front of the Iris.

    This is mine and my wife collection as of now :) We also just got the Estes Pro Series Nike Smoke and Mega Red Der Max and two other smaller kits. All but two of the Rockets in the picture were built this year. Well technically all but one since Comanche 3 had to be rebuilt after the second stage didn't light and it lawn darted.

    Ouch! These aren't kits. Check the website in my signature.

    Saturn V will be at Bong in August to scare the dog people. Will fly on a 5 motor cluster, 4 k1440's and a n2600.

    I don't know about the Redstone, as it is really fragile.... Made out of velum and thin balsa frame. Weighs about 4 pounds total. The Saturn V weighs about 120.

    Is that an XB-70 in the lower left, next to the Saturn V? Whatever it is, it looks interesting.
