Well ideally a L3 shot would be in order. But given my current progress probably not :(

Full scale patriot will be pretty damn cool to see though :D

I should have the Half-scale Nike Apache flight-worthy by then.

Two stage. Stack height will be about 4.35m (about 14'3"). Boosting on an N or O, sustaining on an M likely.

Should be a blast :D

Progress is slower than I would like currently :(

Next time, I'm going to take a leaf out of Crazy Jim's book - start drinking beer at 9.00am, and party like it's 1999! I might fly a rocket, but only if no real work is involved :-)

An L265 with a ten second burn would be brilliant for that
