Here are a couple of newly added 3d print files that may interest you guys. The first is a stand that you can use to display your models so that they look like they are blasting off. The second is a fin gluing jig, and body tube marking jig, to make life easier when building rockets.

A flickering tea light might be cool in that display stand.

There are two previous fin gluing guides on Thingiverse. They are both highly configurable (some OpenSCAD knowledge required), and they both position all fins at the same time. However they both use an 'in the tube' support, so they require that the fins must be placed before a motor mount is assembled.

I don't think that I'd had these in my model rockets Thingiverse collections before, but they are there now. https://www.thingiverse.com/garyacr...s/model-rockets

We may have to get a printer. A fan of the RB book series just sent us a couple of Cestris fighters he printed. They're not huge but still pretty cool.

I posted a shot of them beside a regular size Cestris. I think they're about 4" long.
