Home from NARAM
Managed to survive various rocket flying disasters to come in 4th at NARAM and 3rd nationally for the contest year.

Our two stage scale altitude model came in first in static points, but the booster crashed when we flew it. Crashes work both ways. Our plastic lunar module was third in static points, then took first place because the two models ahead of it both crashed.

Has anyone ever seen a plastic model kit for a flying squid?

A Vorlon ship? (B5)

I'm sorry about your booster, but congratulations about your plastic lunar module. Did you get the lunar module back intact? I recall it has lots of little appendages that tend to break off.

No, alas, I have never seen a plastic flying squid model. Would using sculpie to model one over a regular rocket be too heavy?

The lunar module survived without a scratch. In fact it miraculously landed upright on its legs!

It would likely be to heavy. In addition it wouldn't qualify in the plastic model conversion event.

This year there was a non-qualifying entry of a submarine, this caused me to think of flying fish and of course the jet propelled octopus and squid.
