I have built the Vulcan. Also have updated PDF since the right wing alignment was a tad off.

I've built two Icarus prototypes today. Not quite there yet. I just finished another update and will build a third one tomorrow. It is more of a modified Vulcan since I know it flies. It is to cold out to go test a new design. I have no idea what it needs for balance yet.

No...I'm in the same situation as the Taurian Bruz (see: http://www.spacemodeling.org/jimz/kb-3.htm [pages 5 and 6]), only with solid hooves rather than cloven ones...

Default Completed Vulcan Rocket

I just completed my Vulcan rocket. I started it last night at 7:30 p.m., worked on it until 10:00 p.m. and finished it tonight at 7:00 p.m. I need a better nose cone and place the recovery system in it.
