I didn't do a build thread of this here (there is quite a bit on my site), but here's the finished product of a Dr. Rockzo (of Metalocalypse) themed Eruption.

I flew it yesterday on B6-4s, but one of the igniters fell out before lighting the motor. Flight was fine but it cocked over a little after leaving the rod.

Good theme based rocket finish.

I have one as well. I really recommend the new Quest long burn C motors for it. I also recommend the new Quest ignitors to get ii lit. They work great for clusters.

I actually was using the new Quest igniters, and they all lit fine. I think I just didn't have them secured well enough, and one pulled out before lighting the motor. I'll secure them better the next time. I do want to try some of the new Quest C motors.

This is just great! The straws are too funny. You have to know Dr Rockzo to get it.

They were glued on as an after-thought for comedic effect. You can do a search on youtube for dr. rockzo and you'll get it.

Thanks, yeah a dethklok rocket would be awesome. For the stickers I just used Staples brand white sticker paper, and printed with my inkjet printer. I sprayed some clear acrylic afterwards to protect them.
