Didn't do build photos on either of these two models.

MM 424 is a Aeropace Specialty Products (A.S.P.) 1: 106th Scale model of the US Army Corporal tactical Missile. I purchased just about all ASP's Micro Scale model kits in 2003.. hung them on a cup hook in the shop and promptly forgot about them. Over the Holiday's while cleaning my work bench a couple of these came into view. In January the Corporal came together very quickly. so quickly I didn't even take a single build picture....Sorry; it was a very easy build. My only modifications were as usual chucking the supplied mylar streamer and WAY to Short shockline for 42" of 50lb Stainless steel reinforced Kevlar shockline and a 3/8" x 9" Orange Teflon tape Wadding/Streamer. The other mod was to replace the styrene tube Launch Lug and standoff piece with two much smaller 1/32" and 1/16" pieces of Fliskits Micro Launch Lug.

MM 425: Is a scratch built 2.2x down Scale of the 1963 released Estes Skyhook. it's probably the 3rd model rocket I ever built back in the day and the first Estes kit. (I preferred Centuri kits back then). It's just another of those OLD "back in the day" models I wanted to add to the Micro Fleet.

Photos of the completed models below without the usual mosquito for scale. I'll try to remember to get these two down in the Mod-Roc dungeon for proper photos a bit later:)

Got out to fly some Micro's last Saturday: What a super flying day. a bit breezy but temps in the mid 60degrees with bright sunshine it was a blessing.
Also have the updated static photos with the Mosquito's. Sorry I missed the Corporal Liftoff, Man that little rocket is Quicker then expected.
