Gary, so happy for you! You going to have it done in time for LDRS? Just found out I'll be there....and we're planning a K550W drag race. Just sayin'!

How's about some LaserLOCS?
I wondered if you'd show up here, Jason!!!

If only we knew someone that had a fin pattern and had one of Ron's boat tails, maybe there'd be a chance for retro-repros! :wink:

I'm up to it, rocket building in overdrive.

Isn't that an old pml boat tail
Similar...but this one is actually wood, turned by Ron. I'll let you fondle it at the next TWA launch!:)

If Jay and Dave decide to reproduce this one, I'd bet that it will be cast in urethane (like PML) or fiber-infused resin. Time will tell.
