Is It Just Me?

Or does anybody else see something else in rocket designs?

Every time I see the Estes Scorpion -

It reminds me of a running Greyhound.
That's probably why I didn't buy the kit.


  1. Look a bit like a Klingon Bird-of-Prey. Mostly in the wing...

    1. Hi Scott,
      Your are right! Maybe that's where Mr. Boren got the wing shape.

  2. The bird of prey image on the web is day glow green too...

  3. There is a real aircraft that was named Bird of Prey
    (though it bears no resemblance to the fictitious spacecraft from Star Trek, being a technology demonstrator for stealth technology it is somewhat similar to the fictitious craft equipped with a "cloaking device" for stealth).

    As for me, I had no problem with the shape - what was somewhat off-putting (for me) was the fluorescent green colour. I'll likely paint it a different colour.
