#1 A couple of scratch builds

Post by Joe Wooten » Sun, 11 Dec 16, 23:10 pm

A few weeks ago, I got the bug to use up some of mu huge supply of spare parts, so I decided to build a cople of multi stage rockets. The two stage is a 24mm to 18 mm using BT50, and the 3 stager is a 13mm using a BT20. Now that the wifey has the Christmas decorating bug, I have to shut down my basement workshop and clear the decks of Christmas decorating.....

I gave up the rocket room to Mom of all rockets for her College study room. She doesn't dare ask me to use the rocket bunker for anything now. Everything above ground level is hers now (or son no. 2). I was perturbed by being awoken by the sound of hammering this morning as she was putting more nails in the wall for more Christmas decorations.

Nice builds, The two stager resembles the Avenger without the reduced section of the sustainer.
