I cloned a Farside X a few years ago for NARAM 54 and finished it like the one on the back cover of the '66 and'67 Estes catalogs.

I had asked SEMROC about having basswood fins cut and Carl sent me a set. I was unable to attend, so I don't recall what the Pod Bay Doors flew it on, but it flew successfully and won Team division thanks to the mission points for stages.
I did not cant the first stage fins.

Come on, O.G., put one of those things in your most prized Sprint. We live once.

Chas, that one is beautiful! I can certainly see using that paint scheme on one in the future.

My Astron Sprint has flown more on the B14-7 than any other motor.
A close second is the C6-7...always get it back too.
It has flown on an Aerotech D10 to an insane height once. Winds were nil. Landed within 100' of my backyard launch pad.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and NEVER touch the brake !!!
No Harm=NO Foul advocate

If you are NOT FLYING LOW in the left lane, you need to GET THE #$&@ OUT of it !

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask, you probably aren't
