Nothing as ambitious as what you all are working on. I have an un-built Executioner kit that I have had for years. I have been stealing parts from it here and there for other projects. I ordered what I need to finally build it from Apogee Components. I have learned so much from Tim Van Milligan's Apogee site I feel it is only fair that I do business with him from time to time.
I had good luck at RIMRA and CMASS launches in 2016, but bad luck at Berwick, crashing both my Binder Design Tyrannosaur and Terrodactyl. The former is already repaired and the latter is next on the list.
I was so inspired by Frank's Estes Scion at the December launch in Berwick (freezing!) that I arranged for Santa to bring me one. It is going to get a FG layup to reinforce the airframe, some sexy fins from 3D Rocketry and an upgraded 38 mm MMT.
But most importantly, 2017 is going to be the year of learning how to fly HPR 2-stage. I am working on a semi-scratch-built FG two-stager using parts from Wildman, and I'm hoping to build a 3" upscale Estes Magnum. I foresee multiple trips to Berwick in my future. Hopefully my luck up there changes this year.
I never thought one of my rockets could inspire someone. In 2015 an Estes engine catoed my Partizon kit. When I called the woman at Estes she was wicked nice. She said I would get a replacement engine and kit. When I opened the box I also found the Scion in there. I like how you are going to take the basic kit and modify it. It is a 3" kit that has decent length. You have to cut the fin slots yourself. I look forward to seeing the project when it is completed.
