Was on their website this morning and could not pass up this kit.Includes free shipping.Anyone build one of the x-kits?
Yes, I built one for the EMRR 2009 Challenge, in which I did not get a chance to compete due to a Llama related incident.
Just so no one thinks I am trying to claim credit for the paint job, the linked rocket is not mine. I just patterned mine after Luke Strawalker's fantastic paint job.Very nice paint job.Don't know what paint scheme I'll go with.But I do like yours.Have to give this some thought.
The X-Kits don't have a full set of instructions, just a few added tips. There should be a link to JimZ's site where they can be downloaded.One thing I noticed,are the instructions with this kit?I'm a bit confused about what I'm reading on this.I just built a Sunward Screamer kit(level 3) that turned out great.The hardest thing about that kit was building the motor mount.The cutting of the tube proved to be easier than I thought.But When I ordered this kit it didn't state that it did not come with instructions(or did I miss this?).This is a level 2 build.Any help would be welcomed.this was ordered today.Thanks,cjp.
I haven't built one myself buy there is some good input on the EMRR site. Heres the link: http://www.rocketreviews.com/reviews/all/sem_v2_xkit.shtml
Cool! You're certainly welcome Layne... Never had anybody inspired to copy my work before...Yes, I built one for the EMRR 2009 Challenge, in which I did not get a chance to compete due to a Llama related incident.
It is a great little kit, typical high Semroc standards of fit and finish. Even gives you the option of scale fins or oversized fins. FInished my out in as a proposed Kriegsmarine sea launched version of the V2. Thanks to Luke Strawalker for sharing the great decal he created.
I copied it virtually identically to the Polaris missiles, at least the photos released of the test rounds launched from the Cape:That's a nice paint scheme- i have not seen that one before.
i'm painting my v2 with this paint scheme, which i think looks a bit unusual.
We never actually joined (mostly because we're over an hour away) but we *are* on the Yahoo! groups mailing list. If it isn't posted there, then, yes, I'd love to know when and where.I down loaded the plans after I down loaded the wrong estes kit( no.1926).Then I found the estes k-22 plan.I'm happy to here from a member who flew with MTMA.Great group of people.Hope to see and meet you Peartree.Our next launch is a high powered launch in Middlefield,Ohio,I think in 2 weeks.If your still a member you should get a e-mail from Mark.If not let me know and I can pass on the information to you.Thanks again,cjp.
I am currently, among other things working on the V-2 decals. They are one of the more "dissorganised" files I got with Excelsior. They are all there they are just a bit confusing. I'm not blaming Phred. The V-2 scale decals are just way confusing.having just spent the last few minutes on the web i have found that Excelsior do decal sets for the no 3.
i was going to email you today about these, so thanks for letting me know in advance. still on the base coat of yelow on the rocket, so won't be needing declas for a bit, i'll be in touch. on the positive side, you know you have at leasy one customer wanting the decals! its the no 3 decals that i want, which should be "easier" than the no 2.I am currently, among other things working on the V-2 decals.

I will have combination set when I finish with various V-2 rounds and scale based on main body tube sizes.
Please, be patient with me. The organization on this one is a head scratcher.
Or is that headbanger?:bang:
