Default Yup!

I've actually got two of your gorgeous Tau Zero upscale (SLS class) nosecones, Gordy --- I'm the proud owner of SLS Tau Zero's 1 and 3.

Pics one of these days when I remember to shoot 'em!

OK, see when you wait a year from the time I make the part until you build it I tend to forget.

I don't even remember doing two of them!

Gordy made four ST-10 based 1.37X upscales and three "SLS" 1.75X versions, which Dean has two of in his possession.

That was probably back in 2008.

And yes, they're *gorgeous.*

Cheers,

Cheers,
I actually took a whole series during the build process, but do you think I can find the darn things?

I'm traveling this week and next, but will see if I can grab a snapshot or two when I get home and post. The SLS TZ is really a nice build and a good flier (not to mention Gordy's balsa work on that cone...we're talking "work of art in wood", here).
