Thanks Ed,

Working on a Super X-Ray currently. I found that the Big Daddy nose cone is almost perfect upscale, so it's getting used instead of the long HPR cone. Since the tubes are longer than scale, I cut down main tube and clear payload tube last night.

I'll post some naked pics tonight ... of the X-Ray!

Thanks for clarifying that last!

Look forward to seeing the upscale X-Ray

Here is the X-Ray. Needs new standoffs and rail guides, then its time for primer and paint. The original build had a single standoff and a 1/4 launch lug looked inadequate to me.

For size comparison, that is an Estes Phoenix kit I just painted.
