Thanks for scanning the decal!

Last three G55’s that I flew were pretty difficult to ignite because of the narrow c-slot grain. I would have to check the date codes on the remaining three that I have but mine are AeroTech labeled that I picked up at LDRS in 1994. I used Quickburst "Twiggys" to ignite mine.

I consider myself a *Maniac* for previous usage of the G55-10 motors twice in the same day. My sons rocket never knew what hit it ...

and............................Voila! The Check-Six is finished!

I extended the top black section to included more than just the PNC by painting the top of the payload section far enough from the top to encompass the PNC securing screw--that way I wouldn't have to lay the gradient decal over the screw.

The top gradient decal is a BCH too narrow to completely cover the payload section's circumference so there's a gap of approx. .020" that can be seen. Do I care? No. If the decal was fresh and new there's a chance I would have been able to stretch it. I'm grateful that decals this old are viable at all.

It suddenly dawned on me the possible reason behind the name "Check-Six" (besides the six fins): the rocketeer will probably check the six counties adjacent to the launch site looking for it.

Thanks for watching! On to something else.........

.....like Scotch.

Good night.
