Wondering if anyone has been working on rocket builds and or repairs beside Steve and I.

Care to share with some photos or are you saving for GARLO? Although I fear at this point a GARLO in June is in jeopardy.

4" Madcow Nike Smoke, 2.6" Loc Precision AMRAAM AIM 120 C, and the Leviathan. I just finished the 4" Loc AMRAAM AIM 120 C, but am waiting for brown stripes from Stickershock instead of the incorrect blue stripes that came with the kits. Ready to do some flying.

Well, since you asked...and just to point out that I really do build rockets sometimes - here's an impulse buy/project that I worked on over the weekend. It's a Mach 1 Trivecta 324 in progress. I've been interested in taking a look at his kits for a little while, so here it is - suddenly jumped to the head of the build pile. It was therapeutic to stop other things and mix some epoxy.

Thanks for asking, Gary!

Mark

Cool Mark!

I too am building although it is a bit tough while moving to a new location and getting things unpacked and set up. But, have a BSD Thor in a naked state, and a Mach 1 Daedalus in primer/filler.

I am currently in the planning stage. Since I have a Christmas Candle rocket, I'm thinking of another holiday themed rocket. And, I just need to cut the fins to build a 3" Cherokee D upscale. Plus, I might get creative, so, be afraid, be very, very afraid.

That is really nice. 
But what motors are going to fly it?

Well, on motors for the Trivecta, just spitballing here, maybe F39 RMS, but I may first try something like the single use E30. Blue Thunder isn't my favorite, but it's probably a good idea from a cluster-starting reliability standpoint. We shall see.

Great, Tim! I like them both - two very different split-fin designs. And I always had a thing for the old BSD Thor. Best to you on the move and its associated issues.

Those look really nice Rick. 
Where did you get that Leviathan?

Here are mine.  I think I sent the first one a week or two ago.  If so my apologies.

Sorry about that last email.  Have been having trouble downsizing my pics.  Think I figured it out now.  This is my biggest project!

William Carney
 

I've finished a few new one's.  Currently working on several more.  Still have about 4 builds on my shelve and maybe a few new kits yet.  I posted several pictures on the NAR FaceBook page on the last three projects.

I finished a Madcow DX3XL for a level 3 certification, unfortunately it appears the attempt will need to wait for fall.   (for reference my son is 5' 11" not counting hair)


I'm working on a Mach1 rocketry Devil Ray kit.  I decided to use the coupler as an ebay for dual deploy.  The body is BT55 thin-walled fiberglass.  I used very thin 3D printed centering rings to install a 29mm motor mount and injected aeropoxy to glue the MMT to the body tube.   The ebay is made from plywood bulkheads and a 4-40 threaded rod.  A missleworks RCC2 and a 1S LiPo barely fit :)    I'm thinking through how to mount a tracker in the nose cone!

Looking forward to flying rockets again and seeing everyone.
John

I’ve been painting and printing mainly-acquired a 3D printer as a new toy for the quarantine and have printed a fin can using a rocketry forum users OpenSCAD part creators. That’s the green part. The other fin can is a purchased 3D print that I have filled using filler primer and am now painting. Dan Patel’s Nike Smoke and the Estes Pro Series II Nike Smoke are being painted with thanks to Greg for color advise.

I want to be there and get the level 3 done. Probably wont make up my mind until the last minute though. If I do go, will attempt the L3 flight as soon as possible after I get there.
