So, after the great and way overdue cleaning my house received last week, Kevin Johnson (Kjohnson) came over for a visit. Whist looking through the vast amounts of crap I still have laying around we found a comic book featuring a certain female character that I had had since the mid 80s. Kevin looked at the picture on the back and stated that it would make a good rocket decal. Sigh He was right. So, we spent the next 2 ½ hours at the computer and the Alps taking the little lady OFF of the back of the book, INTO the computer and ONTO some decal paper. Once it printed out it became a challenge to us to make simple 3/4FNC THEMED rockets for 24 and 29mm engines. Estes had some simple classic kits that were only 3/4FNC, but they were great because of the decal layout and paint patterns. Think Red Max, Patriot, Cherokee-D, Goblin, Blue Bird Zero Etc Kevins ideas for his sounded great, so I started thinking on mine. Originally we were going to use the same image to base our models on then see what we each came up with. I ended up excavating the rest of the issues of the comic I had and found ANOTHER great image. So I will be basing mine off of a different picture. Once we get done with our first builds (if we get the time) we will swap subjects for the next build and hopefully end up with 2 impressive looking sport models Feel free to chime in Kev!
