Default tbzep's workbench

Finally got around to shooting a few pics of the last few months of building and finishing. None of these have Future on them yet, so they aren't as shiny as they will eventually be.

The Citation Patriot upscale was chronicled in the Pair of Patriots thread that chronicled my Patriot and my son's Army Patriot builds. I've had it finished for ages, but put off adding the gold wrap decal because it's such a large and fragile application.

Semroc Space Shuttle





I've had this Servo Launcher a while, but thanks to YORF member Bob Thomas, I now have a red blast deflector to go with it.

Semroc Constellation with Estes catalog paint scheme.



Estes Nova Payloader. I was very disappointed in this one. It looks nicer on the face card. The peel-n-cuss decals are terrible, plus, the fins only have decals on one side.

I've had this Challenger I rebuild finished for a long time, but I found an original box and launch pad along with some other goodies. Here it is on the new pad along with my original Challenger I. It was the first rocket I ever bought (mail ordered), built, and flew on my own.



Semroc Astron X-Ray. Estes catalog paint scheme. I hope Carl doesn't mind the Estes decal. I don't know if I like the straight roll pattern or the checkered better.
Edit: I forgot to mention that I built it with a 13mm motor mount instead of the stock minimum diameter 18mm mount.

Sweet builds!! I have been looking at the Semroc Space Shuttle for a while now and your build up has pretty much made up my mind. Pardon me while i go order it.

I've got the rocket and the box, but none of the other stuff was included.

Excellent pics! Thanks for sharing.

I've heard some great things about using Future and may want to give it a try but before I go looking can you tell me what form it comes in? Is it a spray, solid like car way or liquid that you dampen a rag with and then rub on?
