Unless you're confusing Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bill Murray.

You've got some interesting "fiddly bits" there, Craig.

Y'know, designing new rockets in RockSim is pretty cool, but seeing them actually *built* is An Entirely Different Kind of Cool.


You've got another winner here, Craig!

Default Too Much

You are hurting me. I feel like joe schmoe in a room full of Mozarts!!!!!

The Antares is a '70s era winner if I ever saw one. I have loved that Avatar and seeing it for real is a treat. You have captured Model Rocketry's spirit with that one. I've had your plans but haven't started it yet. (hoping for a cold snowed-in winter)

As previously stated, The Andromeda is so beautiful it......., I mean, seeing it for real...(sob)....um...., I must have something caught in my eye....

Post the Plans soon or sell me a kit.

Great job

Default Photos of the Stryker, prototype #2

This is a flight-proven model. The first prototype was lost a few weeks ago.

Bob,

Thanks for the kind words. I actually drew up the Antares in 2003 before I started working with RockSim, and only flight-simmed the model earlier this year. I'm anxious to see it fly in this configuration; I know of at least one other version that's been built as a three-fin, but I don't know if it has actually flown. Andromeda still needs those label skins to be applied.

I was looking for a "retro 50's" style when I worked on the Antares, and I'm happy with the way it turned out, too.

I'm still working on a plan set for Andromeda, something other than just a RKT file...
