    You gotta really love building rockets to scratch one of these up. That's awesome Cl.

    Indeed, and thanks. The reward is in the flight...what a perfect flier.

    I know. I brag about this rocket a lot. Yours flew better than mime did. I think I need a little nose weight. That, or maybe it weather cocked a bit.

    Hi Gary

    yes I did have a collection of pictures Not sure where I saved them too or on what pc, still have the manual that I produced for level 3 and the rocket is in the loft, and it has survived considering I built and flew it back in 2008

    Reviving this old thread to show love for one of my favorite designs. Kind of a trip down memory lane from the time when I used to help John at Thrustline. Here are some old pics from the original beta version. It's really cool to see how much the paint scheme has stayed a part of this rocket. Most I see are very similar to how I painted this one.

    They are wonderful fliers and just plain beautiful rockets. I have a cloned one (built just before Squirrel Works re-released them) and a 3" built with lightweight 3" (Estes tube/BMS T300). The nosecone is a 3" Big Daddy NC and the Tailcone is a 3" PNC-300K from Balsa Machining Service, just need to fillet the fins and finish painting rocket.
