Here is the prototype by Ken Montayne, Rocket Doctor. Much nicer nose and a little better fins:

The story of how it changed is in the middle of this post:

Leo's photo is gone. The one drawback to using linked photos on this forum.

Actually something must be wrong here on YORF. I did an inspect on the message and the links are there and the links are alive.

So, the prototype Ken showed me at NARAM-50 was not this one. It was yellowish in color with PNC60AH and clipped delta fins reminiscent of the Centuri Hustler. Still had Ken's usual block lettering for the name.

This one is closer to the final design with shorter (PNC60K?) nose and elliptical fins.

Photos show for me. Could you have an ad blocker installed that is blocking it?

I like this rocket design.

I like the circle/slash over "TUNICK" decal idea even better.
I'm still amazed at Estes' survival with that supposed "leadership".
Turning a hobby company into a toy company is a disaster.

No, no blockers. Something up with Chrome, though, as Safari on my phone shows them.

Nice change on the fins. Sorta Vagabond-ish. Remember to always wear clothes when taking pictures near a mirror!
