Here's part of what I have laying around waiting for the paint season to arrive.

Fly that Fire Fly on some original S motors. That's what I plan on doing with mine, when I get it built. The Fire Fly was my first 2-stager as a kid.

What is that 5th rocket up there? Is it a Canaroc design?

Where'd you get the ramjet cones for the Snooper?

Probably red with a flat black tail section (part with the vanes)

Who has a supply of those?

Nope, that's one of my own inventions. I drew that plan up in HS back in the 70's and finally got around to building one last Fall.

Thats the Qmodeling kit. Highly recommended BTW. I have their Starship Vega that's finished and just got the Stiletto for Christmas.

The first kit is a Phoenix (Matt Steele) Brighthawk 2000

Second is a Semroc Laser X

Third is the Snooper II

Fourth is a BT-50 size Mini Vindicator

Fifth is the Pulsar Buzz original

Sixth is the Shrox Space Shuttle

Seventh is a Thoy Thuria and Semroc FireFly. The Thuria is one of the kits I designed for Thoy before Rich sold the company to Rocket R&D.

Do you mean besides me and Bob Kaplow? There's a dude down in TX that "had" a bunch he was looking to dump. I could give you his contact info if you want to get ahold of him to see if he still has them. I fly my original Birdie on shorties still as well.

I've got a Thuria and Cluros sitting around here somewhere that I got cheap from Dave at Red Arrow a number of years ago.

Who came up with the funky names?

Sure, pass it along. I bought a ton of A10-0's from Red Arrow last year to fly in my Midget and Beta. I had planned on modifying the FireFly to use mini's, but if I can get some shorties I can hold off on that.

I did. I'm a huge fan of the John Carter of Mars books by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Thuria and Cluros were the "Barsoomian" names for the Martian moons. The Sci Fi kit I designed for Rich that never made the store shelves was called Tavia after a female character in one of the books. Here's a pic of that model.

I sent you one contact by email. The other one is in my rocketryonline.com email box, and that system (everyone.net) is down right now.

Here are some progress shots (or lack of progress) and some new projects.
In no particular order there's a Semroc SLS Jaguar, SLS Javelin, Laser-X, Astro Jr, and Firefly. Also a 1X Der Red Max clone, mini Vindicator, and two upscale Screamers. Why two? Easy.... I finally wore out my original upscale and needed a new one. Phred's decal sheet came with enough to dress out two so I made two! Lets see... there's still the THOY Thuria needing primer, an Estes Big Daddy, my Cherokee-DD, Qmodeling Snooper II, Shrox Shuttle, Scale Kits Apex, DOM entry Pulsar, and my Phoenix Brighthawk 2K. I need to do a lot of painting! I want to get started on my upscale Stiletto and 1X Black Widow clones!

I notice you went with a longer payload section on your CDD. What's the length on that section? I'd like to punch all of those numbers in to RS before writing up the PDF instructions.

Sincy THOY is OOP and OOB, what is the status on your Thuria design? Could it perhaps be a good candidate for BARCLONE now? Or, perhaps, since it was intended to be a commercial production kit, maybe a set of plans could be sent to Scott?
