We moved back in June and are still trying to get settled in the new place. I picked up a Centuri designer special (circa 69) a while back and decided to build a Payloader 2 using the vintage parts. I have also completed a scratch Estes Aerobee 300 and ARCAS, all waiting for paint. Now only if winter will move on.

Geez ! 60 rockets? In a year?
I've been BAR-ing for a year and a half now and only have a dozen flyable rockets to show for it!
I do have a somewhat more aggressive build schedule on the docket for this year that will more than double my fleet, if it all gets done

Currently on the bench right now are:

Lunar Patrol (only lacks painting)
Satellite Interceptor (Ready for primer)
Star Seeker (Just needs decals)
Repair of the Star Trooper and its accompanying booster stage. (Both are done except for decals / markings)

New projects for 2018:

Mercury Redstone
Apollo Little Joe II
FlatCat Boost/Glider
FlatCat modified as R/G
Alpha (In my entire rocketry career, I never got around to building one of those!)
Canopus II (A self-designed old-fleet cluster rocket that I had published in a long ago issue of Model Rocketeer.)
WAC-Corporal / Tiny Tim boilerplate test model - to work out staging.
WAC-Corporal / Tiny Tim - the real-deal scale build.
Rascal R/G
Big Bertha
Nike Smoke
Starblazer (the old K kit version)
Orbital Transport

I seriously doubt that I will accomplish ALL of this, but I'm definitely going to take a run at it!
Just remember...G. Harry Stine's first ever model rocket was an RTF !
