Rockets Thrown Away?
I've got a lot of rockets. Sometimes you've got to make room for the new kids. I hate throwing them away, I've got some time invested in the build.
But sometimes you get past the point of repairs.
This is a BT-50 based Jayhawk, the original produced kit Starlight. The kit is now being sold through Uncle Mike's Rocket Shack.
This is about the same size as the OOP Centuri kit but has 3/32" thick fins instead of fibreboard.
I've got an attachment to this kit, I drew up the instructions for Bob at Starlight.
There was some extra detailing. A tailcone and conduit were added. The small forward fins were set higher on the nose cone. I did a variant of the all orange missile.
I'm okay letting this one go - I have two more in bags upstairs along with the big Macow Jayhawk waiting to be built.
