I remember going there last summer, amazing experience.
tried again to get this boatail seam to blend in right. Grr
Seal across the joint with bondo spot and glazing putty, allow it to dry overnight, and sand with a long sanding bar.
Masked the BBII for black paint last night and shot the payload tube as a test piece. I forgot to spray white first, so there was a little paint bleed, but overall it turned out well.
Thanks Banzai i think i can find that stuff on island ill give it a try!
Unboxing my brand new Falcon Heavy from SpaceX. Looks to be a high quality kit, very nice graphics and solid tubes. Clean plastic casting. Not too bad for $29.00
I believe that's a Falcon 9, not a Falcon Heavy. Flew mine a couple of weeks ago, nice straight flyer. I think I had a D motor in it.
Boyce Aerospace has 3D parts to upgrade the 9 to a Heavy. You supply the tubes:http://boyceaerospacehobbies.com/?page_id=1807
You are correct, I was so excited I misread the box !
I wrote a post on the Tripoli Forum explaining the 1500 foot rule for HPR launch sites.
Now it's starting to look the part.
I took some good advise from another member and got great results, thanks Banzai she blended in perfect, great tip!
Yesterday I did NOTHING. All day I was diligent at doing nothing. Unfortunately, I didn't get it done. I will continue to do nothing today, until I get nothing done!
Shouldn't that go in the "What I did today -instead- of Rocketry" thread?
Hobby store going out of buisness so I replenished my stock.

Today I finished up this small rocket for my little brother!
15.5g without the recovery system. Hopefully, I don't lose this one on the first flight...
Wow, that is super light!
Tulsa Rocketry 30th Celebration @ Hobby Town!
Commenced searching for the decal that replaced the one I previously lost. This would be comical if it weren't so outrageously infuriating. OK, I guess it's still pretty comical.
I am beginning to suspect foul play.
Pour and fill poly. I get mine from MAC
Primed and basecoated the new 4 inch Glass bird from madcow
I looked at the 4" PAC-3 in my basement. Worked on plans to get a TARC team to Virginia!
Finished my 3D model of SpaceX's Starship. I plan on making an 3in version of it and launching it on some small high power motors (38mm). It will use traditional single deploy with motor ejection and a JLCR.
Files will be posted on Thingiverse tomorrow. Both the nosecone and booster section are 3D print optimized with no substantial overhangs and uniform wall thickness (2mm or 5 lines). Looking forward to having others test it out and see how it holds up. May consider making the fins separately printable with through the wall tabs just to make them more durable.
Best of luck at the Nationals.

Aaaaaand I found it, after a *thorough* search. I have now put it in a place where I cannot lose it. You heard it here first.
Resuming normal existence now.
Maybe tell us where you put it so it is written down somewhere that can’t be forgotten.
Got all the SMT components mounted on my first Eggtimer kit (Quark)
Good job. The Quark might be the cheapest kit to build. But those SMT parts are the smallest. I think the Quantum is the easiest to assemble.
