I cut the fins out for the Zoom Broom one night here at work last week. I'm going to sand them tonight if I can get on top of the workload.
We got WAY on top of the work on Wednesday last week. I found myself bored and cut out the cardstock parts for the ESS Raven. I planned to coat them with thin CA, but it had thickened since the last time I used it. (The little brush stayed down in the bottle when I pulled the lid off. )


I think the Mobile store was waiting for me, as it had exactly two Baby Bs. It now has two less...

I'm cutting out the parts to one of our own Goons, the Thunder Goony. I need to cut a 9" length of BT-60, but I've got spares. The fins are sitting next to me right now, just cut them out before logging on again.

One of the three Screamin Mimi's I have is going to become a Thunder Auk...

With the weather turning bad again (rained tonight and last night, another wave coming through tomorrow night, then it turns cold again), I had to start up some back-burner projects. This one just seemed a good place to get going. It also gives me a good excuse to clean off my workbench and get back on another project that I started before Ivan came through -- a Sig Seniorita, with ailerons. The wing is almost finished, but nothing else has been done.

To say that I have plenty of building projects is an understatement...

Default What goes around...

Hobby Lobby is having another half-price week for Estes and Quest kits and starter sets. Be sure to print out their ad and take it with you, just in case the store personel haven't been told ahead of time...

Didn't I just write this a week ago? Two weeks ago?

Well, I'm writing it again, 'cause it's happening again this week...

OK, so I'm just copying and quoting. Same thing...

Carl and the gang up at SEMROC will be getting the little green pieces of paper this time around. I need some real goodies to work with...

Um... "Tubby?"

Okay, how about a Thunder *Dodo?* (But only if you use a really wimpy engine so the rocket *doesn't* make it off the pad!)

OR if you use an engine with a really big ejection charge that renders the Dodo EXTINCT!
Hmmm? Where would we find such an engine?

I like that name -- Thunder Dodo...

I'll whip out a new RKT file as soon as I get my computer back in shape. Picked up a virus last Thursday, from the "usual suspect -- email attachment..." I should have known better -- the message with the virus came from "me", or at least from an old email address that I no longer used. Curiosity killed another cat...

Side note, I'm using the latest Ubuntu Linux distro right now for my email and web stuff. Really stable. If I could just get Wine to work with the three or four Windows apps I need, I'd dump XP in a heartbeat!

What's that line from the Hoodwinked movie clip, where the wolf and the little rodent character are rolling down the "Indiana Jones mine cart" scene --

Wolf: What kind of candle is that?

Rodent: (Pointing to the lettering on the cylinder) Dee-na-MEE-tay...

I guess I'll have to include an "E" mount...

Another side note, I'm working on a Goon using the Quest Full Moon. I keep having this horrible image with that name, though, like what kind of decal image I'd need to use...

The name alone is Goony enough...

Or an A8-3 to lift this 3 ounce rocket, only to finally fire its ejection charge 11 feet off the ground.

"Behold!" (maniacal laughter)
