Steve,

Neubaurer Rocketry has a 2.6" diameter Orion model.

It has vacuum-formed wraps with a 24mm motor mount.

You may have seen a picture of this model on the cover of the Nov/Dec 2006 issue of Sport Rocketry.

Bob,

I remember when you first posted the pictures of yours from NARAM Very nice!

I have been speaking with Jim Neubauer via email since the Holidays. He told me the Orion II model has been "updated" and now features a new resin nose cone instead of the balsa nose cone. The decals were made to look more like the original Orion, plus they were made on an Alps printer. He also told me he improved the body wraps.

I'm actually waiting for him to reply. I tried to send him an order using an AMEX Gift Card I got for Christmas but PayPay doesn't seem to want to accept that. Did I mention I hate PayPal? If not: I hate PayPal

I was going to procure the parts to build a Semroc SLS Orion according to the RockSim file parts/dimensions that Craig posted but by the time I figured how much it would cost to purchase 1B wraps, parts & decals the Neubauer kit looks attractive.

I do have a couple of question for you Bob. Since the Neubauer kit doesn't include it, how did you make your nozzle shroud and do you still have a pattern. It just wouldn't look right without the nozzle. Were the kit fins balsa or basswood?

Thanks!

Steve sez:

"I always wanted the Centuri Space Shuttle and never owned one. I've wanted one when Mike Jerauld with Blast From The Past had parts kits for sale but as usual I procrastinated and missed out. I'd buy an SLS version of that one too!"

At a NARCON a few years back in Austin, I roomed with Mike. Anyone renovating their childhood home on Penrose Street deserves some credit. I have one of his BFTP shuttle kits and got a couple of his vacuum-formed cones for a clone.
I gave Mike an opened Centuri Space Shuttle kit, as I still have a sealed one, and he was to send me one of the super-sized kits. Life happens. I'm out an historical kit.

The rest is histerical...

I am late to join the party. Carry one. SLS Orion, eventually.

How about some SLS of the ORIGINAL SEMROC kits?

Goliath? Lune R-1? Swift?

I was on the board for one each of Mike's Mach 10 and M10-D kits. I got one of his shuttle kits, which just needs a few finishing touches before I drag it out to VOA. All of the tough stuff is done, like building the pod and setting up the pod attachment points. I think I just have to put the elevators on the booster and shuttle, and those are just paper IIRC. Maybe next week?

I had an Asperger once. They overcooked it. You have to be careful with them. Low heat and only turn them once.

How about a SLS Cherokee based on the tube used in the SLS Laser X with similar interchangeable motor mounts? That would make it a little larger than the old AAA Cherokee G.

One word. S.P.E.V.
Okay, so not technically a word. More like four letters, but you get the idea.

An SLS SPEV? After we spent over $200 for the antomically correct BT-52!? What is the SLS equavalent of BT-52?

OK, three questions is the limit for one response. Isn't it? OK, now it is 4.

Consider this a second and third request for a SLS Cherokee, Carl.

Which one would you want upscaled?

I vote for the original 16.35" short body tube one and not the later 18" one.

The Fish Man spoke thusly: One word. S.P.E.V.

I will second that. I had a SPEV many moon ago. Still have the original Estes parts to build another, plus BMS parts. Someday I will build one and a Thor-Agena B clone.

Still, a 175% SPEV would be, well spevlicious. I may have to play with the ratios tomorrow. Thanks Bill...jeez, I'd like to finish one of the 19 projects in work (seriously).

Chas
