Default New Sim of the Estes Cherokee D (1247)

NEW! Improved! Now with decals!







Since I've moved to China, I don't have any rockets to build (yet). So, I've been working hard on my .ork simulations. Now thanks to neil_w's decal thread on TRF, I've improved my abilities.

Mind you, since the decals on the fins are all unique, I had to cheat a little to make them all look right. So, you'll find that it has 6 fins, and the CP is off. Also since I simulated it with an engine hook, there's an error about jagged edge fins (that how you simulate engine hooks).

I hope you all enjoy this blast from the past.

Launching is Optional... Landing? That Depends on Trees.

What are you doing in China? My employer has extensive construction going on there with 4 new nuke units.

I'm teaching English. My experience with Nukes ended when I left the USAF (I used to put them on planes).

I hope all is going well with the teaching gig!

I can see there's plenty to do without physical kits to build.
