I had a few of Jack Hydrazine's excellent fin cans printed last week so it shouldn't take long to assemble.
My Phoenix Bird already has the original four fin version of the can, so I went with the three fin model this time. Very nice!
Before you ask, it will be 24mm powered. As much as I would like to put the correct 29mm engine in there, I know that if I do I'll never see it again.


I got a Cricut a few months ago. One of my first projects was to get a clean set of Enerjet vinyl decals cut. Here is my 1340 (Eliminator kit courtesy of Bill Eichelberger) that sat painted for months and finally got its markings. I also decided against going 29mm. Also shown is a downscale of the Enerjet 2250 to BT60 I did during the shutdown, with BIG decals (I got a little carried away).

Bunch of weenies.

Attached are pictures of my Enerjet 1340 flown with an AeroTech/Enerjet F67-9W motor at NARAM-60.

Perhaps you could be so kind as to tell us to where our man cards should be returned.

We’re Not Worthy!

Thanks. I can't take credit for the outhouse graphic. It's from the Estes decal sheet.
I was hoping to paint the Drei Maxx today, but as I look out the window I see it's snowing again.

Your 2250 really looks great. That Cricut is a handy item to have!

That launch photo has more flat, open ground than my whole zip code.
You'd almost have time for a cold one until that bird finally floated back down to sea-level.
Impressive!

I haven't installed the motor mount yet so technically I don't have to give up my man card.
