    My Wife got me the Estes "3 Bandits" kit from Hobby Lobby for Christmas. I actually enjoyed building these three rockets. Anyway, one of them I really like. Stands out to me and reminds me of the first model rocket I shot off back when I was 4. So I decided to ask, which of the three bandits is your favorite. I wont reveal mine until enough people vote.

    Don't blame me for your shortsightedness. ;)
    Title said "... favorite bandit..." :p

    I could have gone this way with it...

    Your rockets look great--and I like the orange one best. But Burt will always be the favorite bandit. Dude--no contest.

    I voted for the purple one.
    I would guess you liked it because the fins resemble your first rocket.
    That first rocket might have been a Centuri kit - maybe a Payloader 2?
    The green one does remind me of the Centuri Starfire fins.
