I'm thinking about moving to WA just for the launch day buffet.

Don't get anything like that in NSW!

Great photos by the way.

How big is that upsized Fat Boy? Would love to build one of those.

Thanks Aquaman,

The cheese board comes between morning tea and the sausage sizzle we have for lunch. Safe to say we don't go hungry!

As for the Fat Boy, I'm not quite sure. IIRC it was flying on a 29mm AeroTech Hobbyline but I could be mistaken.

It certainly looks inviting
We need our own Lamington Lady.
Are you offering to take on that role, Aquaman? :wink:

The Lamington Lady was unable to come to our launch this past weekend. Safe to say things weren't the same! Fingers crossed she makes it to our next launch.

Awesome photos Drew! Love the launch pics of the sparkies.

And yes, we are super lucky to have the wonderful Lamington Lady looking after us all!

I am working on an updated version of my Pringle rocket, so I might be able to supply a bowl of Pringles, but I definitely can't compete with our friends in WA.
