Well I hope you manage to get on a plane soon...and keep lubricated (but not so much they don't let you fly) :wink:

I'm looking forward to catching up! :D

My DragQueen entrant is almost done, I just need to paint the lower section between the fins and she'll be done.

I hope to see plenty of entrants in this race, I may not be the winner but I reckon my rocket is going to look a million times better than the others thanks to some nice pearling I've just had done :evil: Photos don't do the finish justice.

Bring it!

Pfft. You're going to be too hungover to care. :twisted:

Is it similar to the finish on BoB (but red)? It already looks good.

Looks good, Simon! The plan for decorating mine is to buy random bumper stickers wherever I stop on the drive up to Westmar!

Yep, its the same as BoB. No need to worry about a hangover, all I have to do is throw the single use motor in it and chuck it on a pad :)

Bumper stickers sound good, I found a pile of train stickers which were going to get stuck on, but the pearling will have to do

SORRY Jase....but have to disqualify your entry, bit of a clash between rocket....the knickers & shirt!!!!!

Rockets OK....your disqualified...LOL

Stopped at Nic's to build my "Punisher" entry. He was kind enough to put the paint on it. By far the best any rocket of mine will ever see.

Just a wee bit of body tube, just long enough to hold a motor & the NC with chute inside.

Then off to Blako's to help a bit with readying the goods for launch....I heavily modified his DarkStar entry....now a Darker Star....one with green fins and no-payload. his chute now in the NC also...7600 case with a blankety...blank in it.

A few shots loading the goods in cross country buggies & most important of all!!!!! the BAR SIGN.....would not want any of you blokes not to find your personal fuel!

So off to bed & on towards launch site today, for set Up's....see ya'll there!
