Default New Goon







Anyone care to take a guess as to which full size rocket it's based on?

No, Bill got it. He just didn't include the obvious Goony name change.

I was "researching" an answer and didn't see your response to Bill's post until after I posted mine.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the design.

So little that it will be almost not worth talking about. The fins are the normal size for the 2+ foot tall bird, which struck me as being quite goony. I just need to decide where to do the sep line between the red and black paint and have Sandman run off a set of "renegoon" decals when he's up and running. I've got two more planned for this weekend, both of which will take a bit more planning, but both of which will a) look quite a bit cooler, and b) allow me to make my own decals.

Ahem...

BARCLONE Renegoon, from 2006: ORIGINAL POST

I'm sure this version isn't original, but I haven't seen another version built anywhere...

Bill, let us know how good it flies. It should be about like the Thunder Goon...

Quite goony! I'll bet if you recovered the nose cone separately with a streamer the rest might just glide down making for even goonier flights .....

{I had an original Estes Red Max that did that}

Ooh! That would be a cool recovery mode, both for this goony and for any other rockets.
