The Ebay auction is what caused me to go to morerockets.com in the first place and that is when I learned their site was down.

I bought two Vipers last month and like their overall quality. The nose cone was shaped by them in house. So itís not a custom piece like the viper nose cone over at Sirius Rocketry.

Hey, just bringing this back to shine a light on something I find... questionable:

http://cgi.ebay.com/BLACK-VULCAN-Fl...=item2c5904b842

Now, anyone who has seen me around knows I created the Black Vulcan design shown here back in 2007:

http://www.oldrocketforum.com/showthread.php?t=1569

Note particularly the "alien font" on the side of the rocket... I acquired it from uazu.net (the full link is on my build page). The font is licensed under Creative Commons; I probably should have pointed that out on my page, but at least I gave credit where credit is due.

I would never try to sell this rocket, as I just recolored and reannotated the original Centuri wraps (the copyrights to which are owned by Hobbico now). But this fellow is selling it. I note two interesting bits:

Is he including the big chunk o' nose weight this rocket requires? 'Cause, it's NOT stable without it.

Now, if that is the original Centuri story-sheet, that would also be copyright Hobbico now.

When Carl clones a rocket, he redesigns it from scratch, includes his own instructions and credits the original company. Not so MoreRockets. I'm more than a bit incredulous at this. No credit for Centuri, no credit for Jim Peters or Tyler Montbriand's font design, and no credit for me (least important of all).

Thanks to hcmbanjo @ TRF for bringing this to my attention.
