I went to bed and a question occured to me that is keeping me from getting any sleep until the question is posted here.

I looked on my desk and saw my only Baby Bertha sitting in its package. I had already decided to build it "stock" for my own reasons. Then, as I try to get to sleep I wondered,


How does one goonify a Baby Bertha?

:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

It fits the criteria of well loved, BT60, Bertha NC. There must be a way!

For the love of mercy, somebody please tell me what it is.

OK, John. Put down the X-Acto knife and the bottle of wood glue, and slowly back away from the workbench.

There, that's better.

I think that someone needs to take a little break from kit-building. I know of a place where one can relax and get away from it all for awhile...

Change the decals and call it good!

I'd make a decal that says, "Goonie Bertha" and paint it red.

You mean something like a Goony Bertha? That's easy. Just find an old Rascal kit (or clone one), paint it like a Big Bertha (pick whatever era), use some Big Bertha decals (again, whatever era you choose), and add the word Goony in front of the word Bertha when you apply the decals. At least that how I built my Goony Bertha. :D

I simply upscaled the Baby Bertha 1.59X.

Now I have a BT-80 Big Baby Bertha in the paint queue.


Estes Rock-it next to it to provide size reference.
D-powered, too.

Gonna need some ExcelsiorWerks upscale decals down the line...

I feel a '57 goonie build coming on!:eek:

Thanks for the great service.:)

Ummm... I always thought that a Baby Bertha WAS a Goony... a Goony Big Bertha...


BTW: "Rocket Doctor" on TRF was the designer of the Baby Bertha. I met him and saw his original prototype at NARAM 50. It has decals of baby Elephants!

Tell me that ain't Goony ????

But isn't a Baby Bertha already a Goonified Big Bertha? :bangpan:

How do you Goonify a Cloud Hopper? A Missile Toe? :confused: :confused:

There needs to be a rule that Goonies can't be self-referential (you can't goonify a goony).

I like Char's idea - keep the linear dimensions but make it with a BT-80 or 101.

You could call it BABY FAT BERTHA.

Awaits demerit PM...

:eyepop:Ok, I know I really don't know much about rockets, but when I saw the images of the Bertha's in line to be painted...it just screamed to me Lawn Dart, like that deadly children's game with the hoops and darts...:eyepop:

Ahh, yes...takes me back. [reminiscing]

I remember those carefree summer afternoons back when I was a kid, playing JARTS football on the backyard. I was always a wide receiver...

And then for fun, there was JARTS dodgeball... And we LIKED it!

Good times, those were. Good times!

Some kids down at the other end of the block used to play dog frisbee with JARTS, but I could never get into that...
