Avenger Guinevere!

OK I'll get started.

First the original prototype from...OMG...2005! :eek:

http://www.rocketryforumarchive.com...light=Guenavere

And it's spelled Guinevere.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guinevere

Now be patient with me on this.

I built this one as a one off and after 6 years I've given in and am going to try to produce this as a kit.

I had no original plans and the patterns were hand drawn and long gone.

I am going to try and reproduce this from the pictures.

Oh, BTW, the decals are already finished! :D That was the easy part.

Very Dragonship 7. I LOVE IT!!!

I'd buy one.

In fact, I'd pay a deposit, when you're far enough along to feel comfortable taking one.

I was delayed getting my Vostok prototype built.

I'll try to have it worked out this week.

I still want a Sandman Little Joe II kit !
While this one looks great, I'd still rather he announces a batch of LJII's are ready !

Almost ready to give up on his LJII and order the Neubauer instead.

OK, I finally finished up my backlog of custom projects so I can get back to this.

I worked out all of the patterns in CAD so those are ready and I've started a new prototype.

This can be done on the cheap but...

Now, the question is how do I proceed?

Do you guys want a full blown kit with laser cut parts, custom nose cones and details?

Or 1) a partial kit, body tubes balsa stock with fin patterns, parts list?

Or 2) a more complete partial kit, fin stock, patterns detail parts (just the guns), nose cone, decals parachute, Kevlar, etc. etc...

Or 3) just a plan set, material list and decals?

Keep in mind that a full blown kit would not be cheap, custom turned parts, and laser cutting cost and that will take time too.

Sandman,
For me there is only one way... full blown kit. Your kits are a sight to behold. You should be paid for your work. Custom kits with original designs should be priced accordingly. When you order from the best, you expect to pay more. Make mine a full blown kit, my paypal is locked and loaded. Thanks .... Tim

Gordy,
#2 'more complete partial kit'

OR

#3 planset with decals and materials list

I need the nose cone and the decals and the materials list. I probably need the little engine tubes at the back and the gun tubes, as well. I can cut the fins and body tube as necessary and supply the 'chute, kevlar, etc.
However, if the price is right, I can get the whole shebang. Could you offer all three choices priced accordingly?
Tim is absolutely correct: Your complete kits are fabulous!

Allen

OK, for you but let's hear what everybody else wants first.

I don't want this to be an expensive kit. Expensive kinda takes the fun out of it and this should be a fun model.

I'm not saying I won't do some full blown kits but that's a lot of "stuff" to get together.

OH! another thing.

The original and my new prototype are using the same plastic PNC-60 that the Estes BT-60 sized Patriot uses. I only have a few of those nose cones.

Do you guys want me to see if I can find more for a kit or is balsa OK?
