Saturday build. Rocket kitten 😂😂😂 #estesrockets #whatcouldgowrong #maker #makersgonnamake

Lots and lots of wood filler. First stage in finishing on the replacement Extreme12 and our little asteroid hunter, complete. Ready to make lots of dust before priming. #estesrockets #elmerswoodfiller #modelrocketry #finishing #asteroidhunter #extreme12

Using Inkscape to start preliminary work on the waterslide decals for the upcoming Bullpuppy 2.1 finish. Using photos of the paint cans to get the pallet just right. Will be using white backed decal paper and will print the Mega Mosquito decals on the same page. I think I'll name this rocket The 7K Kitty after one of our cats, Cleo. Still need to do the stripes (on transparent paper) along with the kit sticker recreations. #decals #waterslidedecals #inkscape #stickers #bullpuppy #pml #publicmissiles #airtoground #agm #vectorgraphics #rocketry #modelrocket #mosquito #estes #estesrockets #cleo #catrocket #kitty

4 Flights! From prototype to what’s left of her here. It started as a cardboard tube, which was shortened after the first launch. The original nosecone was styrofoam, I whittled a nosecone out of balsa for the second launch. It never had the same wings twice, and had none on the final shot. Not bad for packing material. #rocket #estesrockets #diyspaceship #space #diyrocket #moonbase #upwardlymobile

Another weekend rockets past! 🚀🚀

My mini-film contribution for this Sunday🎬. Ken has loved Estes Rockets since he was a boy. In spite of the wind, he still showed us a great time... and a tricky loop de loop! @kenmattson #Sunday #family #funday #🚀#estesrockets #trickdaddy

Another round of #rockets (this time in slo-mo) Turn up volume for best effect... #daddydaughterfun #daddysgirl #rockets #estesrockets

A mini Optima, Bertha and Mosquito walk into a bar.... #modelrocket #estes #estesrockets #optima #bertha #mosquito #mini #rocketry #scratchbuild #clone

Finally done with my Estes Cosmic Explorer. I am thinking this would make a good upscale someday! This was a #Rocketober build that waited. #modelrockets #modelrocketry #estes #CosmicExplorer #2421 #rocketry #estesrockets

#Ventris in full affect. Fin can done. Repainting the white on the body and then adding #stickershock23 decals. #proseries2 #estes #estesrockets #modelrockets #modelrocketry #rocketry

Plugging away at my replacement extreme 12. The original is still under repair, but the warranty replacement arrived early so figured I would get them both up and running. Hope to race them one day. Old vs new.

Little lvl 5 challenge arrived today. Lots of little parts. Got a couple others on the go already so this one will have to wait. Looking forward to the challenge. #estesrockets #modelrocket #skilllevel5 #ebaydeals

Nothing but straight true flights from this little monsters. My first 24mm build, she flys every time we head to the fields. After this last flight though I’ll be packing her myself before flight ;). Thankfully no damage was taken.

Let the repairs begin.
Lost two fins on the sustainer of my extreme12. Figures it would be a good opportunity to try out the 3D printer and print out some replacements parts. Replacement rocket is already in the mail from Estes so no harm here if it doesn’t work.

My last rocket. A real fun one to build. Took far too long, but was well worth the wait. Flew once came down in pieces :(. Sent pics to Estes they sent me a new one in two week. #greatcustomerservice #estesrockets #labouroflove #modelrocket #rocketcrash

Super proud of how well this one turned out. My first “tougher build” lvl 3 build. Little customization with the silver instead of stick white. #labouroflove #estesrockets #modelrocketry #modelrocket

My little collection. All Estes rockets. 18mm and 24mm, single stages and doubles. Now time to try my hand at a scratch build. Stay tuned. #estesrockets #modelrocketry #labouroflove #nerdpower

Resuming build work on a rocket I don’t really care about. I have no idea why. It’s big. It has lots of wood and complex parts. It’s not really a challenge for me... or is it?? #cosmicinterceptor #estes #estesrockets #modelrockets #modelbuilder #modelrocketry #comodelbuilder #skilllevel4 #rocketry
