A handful of Colorado Front Range rocketeers converged on Dove Valley park for yet another enjoyable, if a bit windy, rocket flying session.

Sure thing. This was an Estes DOM 0382 plan. The body tube length is not on the plan, but it is 18" long. I added a rocket nozzle tail cone, and a conduit on the top. The red stripes and black cockpit windows are both made with automotive pinstripe tape.

Bummed I missed the launch.

Mike, I am definitely building a McKibbins Special. Nice job!

It has nice lines. It looks like it would fit right in as a space liner in 2001 A Space Odyssey. It's very vintage-futuristic, for a lack of a better description. The body and pinstriping exude 60's futuristic art and models. The cockpit decals remind me of the the NASA worm logo era.

Thanks tbzep. I appreciate the kind words. I saw this plan ages ago and really liked the looks of it. Finally got around to building it, and I am glad that I did. The plan is on JimZ.
