    I finished up a Squirrel Works Arapahoe-E, but did an different paintjob. I didn't use the provided Thunderbird stickers as they didn't fit in well with the fin's paint scheme. I used Tamiya Coral Blue for the turquoise color - it is a little darker than in the photo.

    Wow, very nice! Great stand as well. Almost too pretty to fly!

    Looking real good. Always liked that model. All mine are darker but I think I might go lighter like yours on the next one I do.

    I'm probably going to use C11-5s, which should send it about 470 feet. Next step would be Quest Q-Jet D16-4 or 6. Maybe under perfect conditions would I break out a D12-5 (920 feet or so). For some reason, the rocket weighed in at 2.87oz vs the 4.1oz that the package specifies.
