My Super Orbital Transport with decals on. Clearcoat tomorrow, install motor mount, then off to NSL the next day.

Some little mom-n-pop company used to offer a 3x24mm engine upscaled Astron Cobra clone kit on ebay called the "Super Cobra".
One I wished I purchased but never did.

I used to have an old Cobra 1500 with a 29mm engine mount. Flew it several times on FSI F7's, F100's, and numerous Composite 29mm engines including an old Enerjet F52-8.
Eventually it succumbed to a F100 cato.

Bob, those look great!

I think we might have met at the NARAM in Pueblo. Paul Wolaver and I drove down on Sunday only and mostly spent money with vendors. We are attending the entire NSL, dinner thru Tuesday tour.

See you there.

Today, on the eve of leaving, I clear coated , then installed motor mount on Super Orbital Transport, then installed mini rail buttons, and hand painted inside of exhausts black for some additional realism. That last effort was exhausting ....
