    It has been busy but I think I can make time for my next vintage build, the Estes Raven.....Look how short the shock cord is in the kit.

    I'm in...

    PLEASE Scan the fins and the decals for me (with a ruler)... I need measurements so I can sim these builds of yours.

    Thanks!

    Been waiting for this one. I had one back in the early 90s, never got the chance to fly it. Been wanting to clone it, think I still have the nose cone. The decals are the only tricky thing cutting out all the lettering from monocoat trim sheet. I did do a bt20 downscale with a 9 inch tube to make up for the RL cone.

    I have been real busy, so rocket building has been slow. I finished the Raven, balsa fins treated with 3 coats of Brodak Balsa sealer, rocket received one coat of primer and toped with Old Krylon Glossy black and grey. I did scan everything and will post.
