    Sorry, but I'm still building mine... Anyway, post photos of upscaled tumble recovery rockets. I'm assuming I'll see a lot of upscaled Mosquitos... Rockets can be kits or custom.

    About the only UP Scaled model of a Tumble recovery original in my Fleet is a BT-70 version of the Scout.
    It's does not recovery by tumbling though it's has a chute. Was Built and flown as part of the opening at Naram-50.

    Here are a few of mine.
    1. BT-50 upscale of the 220 Swift painted in Cub Scout colors.
    2. Scratch goonified upscale of the 220 Swift, which I call the 44 Mag-goon. Large Easter egg NC and 24mm MMT.
    3. Scratch goonified upscale of the Quark. 2" mailing tube and a 1x24mm and 2x18mm MMT.
    4. Scratch upscale of the Red Eye. 2" mailing tube and 24mm MMT. Eventually became the Red Eye Max, as seen in the background of my Red Max family photo.

    Finally! I got a picture. I guess I should throw this open to feather weight recovery upscales, too.

    I assume that N'osquito did not tumble. Very nice, and large. N motor?
