Timbuktu

Waiting for glue to dry

I've been working on a "CiCi2" a model rocket kit that is a two stage boost glider. Both stages have glide recovery. Plans are to use it in various model rocket contests this spring and summer.

It was designed by Rob Edmonds, the "Philosopher Prince" of model rocketry. His designs are famous for ease of construction and good flight characteristics. He is famous for marvelously rambling speeches about model rocketry and color packaging among other things.

Right now the glue is drying. After some touch up gluing, it should be ready for a test glide tomorrow.
