I've been following the design threads on YORF with great interest for sometime now. I'm continually amazed at the seemingly endless design creativity.

Just getting back into the hobby after being away for awhile, I thought I'd finally take a shot and submit a design for your review and consideration.

The general design inspiration came from pictures of a ST Vulcan Surak-Class starship I found online. I setup some basic design goals (documented in Rocksim file) and set out to have some fun. I still have some tweaking to do on the design and look forward to any comments and suggestions. (I'm working on decreases weight some and tweaking flight performance.)

So here for your review and consideration, the Chronos NX1.

Thanks,

... Bill

That design looks great Bill, it will be a tough one to follow. Folks it looks like we have another contributor to the asylum . My concern would be the one pylon for the ring fin support. Two E's have a fairly good kick. Guess one would have to built it to find out it the ring fin would hole the stresses.

Bill,

Dang. Cool.


*Nice* submission! And as Craig would say, "Welcome to the asylum!"


Cheers,

Lightbulb New Design: Patrol Probe

A good name for this next design has stumped me for some time. I decided to go with Patrol Probe for the lack of a better one. With the rear fin design I would highly reccomend using label paper for rienforcing the 3/32 balsa fin material. This should solve any breakage and/or cracking problems.

Enjoy and Thanks Again, JP

Thumbs up SLS "Hi-G" upscale Unearthed from the Archive!

Craig,

It's an old school Semroc Large Scale version of the Estes "Hi-G" design, but we don't have it listed on BARCLONE.

This one was for Chas Russell.


SLS "Li'l" Hi-G 2.41X upscale

http://www.oldrocketforum.com/showp...768&postcount=3


I've come across some other variations on older designs which are conspicuously missing from BARCLONE, so "stay tuned" (as we say in TV and radio) for those to show up here Real Soon Now.


Cheers,

Solo,

It depends on what kind of Patrol you're talking about, of course.


Cheers,

Since Craig "threw down the gauntlet" on November 4th, I've had the occasional creative fit (despite the admission immediately above).

So if I average it out to one a week, it looks like this:

Week of

Nov. 02 -- XPL Experimental
Nov. 09 -- Doc Boy
Nov. 16 -- 5820 A
Nov. 23 -- 5820 B
Nov. 30 -- 5820 C
Dec. 07 -- 5820 D
Dec. 14 -- 5820 Ugly
Dec. 21 -- SONAR 7

It looks like my score is 8 done, 44 to go for 52 weeks' worth of designs, like Craig is lobbying for.


Some of my newest designs will have to wait for RockSim 9's added features, so those releases will be put on hold temporarily.


Cheers,
