You sure got that right Adrian, the Wildman/Wildwoman lunch was just fantastic. Tim and Jackie, thank you both so much for the meal and for your fostering this wonderful sense of family our little group has. You two are the best.
I snuck out from the Tasting Room for a couple hours Sunday morning.
Mixed bag of flights - but I got all the pieces back!
1/35 Titan GLV. Both motors lit this time! Nice low flight on 2xD12-3s. The capsule comes down separately on a piston launched parawing - or rather, comes down in a flat spin under a tangled parawing. But hey, NASA never got it to work, either.
1/100 Estes Saturn 1B SA206 Skylab 2. Suffered chute separation and the booster came in hot and tail first. Looked just like SpaceX without the landing burn. Turned out the elastic shock cord melted. I'll have to check and make sure the Kevlar anchor is long enough to reach above the dog barf.
1/100 Estes Saturn V Skylab 1 on an AT E15-4. Nice lift off. Went unstable. Recovery worked well. The Skylab SIVB weighs the same as the kit upper stage with CSM, but I've plenty of room for nose weight under the Sandman turned Skylab nose cone.
