Default You owe it to yourself to check this out.....

Trust me on this. Vote early and often. This is like a model rocket history lesson. I'm going to go broke if Carl starts producing these kits.

Scott needs to add a "Jumping Man" emoticon...

Carl has the BARCLONE Stryker on that list!

If Carl starts producing the Stryker, I won't be able to contain myself!

I'd consider my rocketry life complete if I landed a design on there.

I voted for the KE-5 Athena and my three personal favorites: The 1340, 2250 & 2650 Sounding Rockets (Even though I just recently bought the parts from Semroc to build another 2250 from plans).

How cool would it be to just press that little button on the left of the screen and the kit you select is added to your shopping cart?

So many good ones to choose from!

hmm, ok, cast my votes... although some of these seem to be in the works, judging from the ' coming soon' items on Carl's site :-)

one thing I noted was the lack of votes for the FSI stuff (read: large scale kits) - these would seem to be a perfect fit for the Semroc line, as they use Centuri / Semroc parts sizes acrossed the board.

also, like the idea of the 2250./2650 :-)

off-topic - Steve, what plans did you use for your 2250, vintage or the ones sold by Composite Dynamics,circa 1980-81 ?

I used both plans and the Gary Rosenfield CD drawings and some pics of Garys rocket from an early NARAM. (Although the original plans are not very detailed) I'm going to start another thread here tomorrow with a pic of my 2650.

sorry, also off-topic!

please do post the pics :-)

I have the CD drawings form the 2250 and 2650, but never had a vintage original kit ... had the chance to buy a 2650 once for big bucks, can;t imagine how rare that is these days ...

I did have (lost ) a US Rockets Hi-test 2650 (not an exact copy ), three G45's at LDRS 6 sent it bye-bye :-)
got a call later that it's remains were found MANY miles away....

if I get a chance, will post pics of my 2250 clone ( original FSI parts ), as soon as I finish putting on the Excelsior Enerjet decals ( Thanks Phred ! :-) , and the chrome wraps to match the CD plans.

plans call for the first flight ( bird's been built for only 5-6 years without decals, never wanted to fly 'naked' although it;s been painted orange and black since bult :-) .. since FSI motors are not to be had, thinking Estes E9-8's ????

Yeah. Nothing I hate more than when someone hijacks my rocket thread by talking about rockets.
Are you kidding? Post away. The only reason I didn't vote for the rockets you were talking about is that I have no idea what they are or what they look like. There are a ton of rockets on the list that are complete mysteries to me. I'm all ears, er.....eyes.

I have the pod tubes for an Orion clone with me here at work tonight. I'm planning to do a little sanding during the inevitable downtime. No wraps on this one just yet, but I reserve the right to add them after I see how it performs. It uses Moldin' Oldies cones and Semroc everything else, including a sharp looking, well thought out ejection baffle. It will be 24mm powered to take advantage of the C11's. Based on my experience with the D12 ejection charges, I'll probably not bother with them. They already cost me a Taurus.
