Nice job WD. I'll bet he really enjoyed this. I was sure hooked on model rocketry when I was a kid.

P.S. That's a great background image.

Thanks Brad.I thought the background was nice also..I printed this out for him and he hung on his wall.I don't know any thing about model rocketry myself.I model it after the V2 but that rocket is not space flight intended as I made it . It was more of a weapon used in WWII with range of 200 miles and speed of 3580 miles hour used by the U.S.,Germany,Soviet Union.One of my next projects slated for the TC Drawing board is Chuck Yeager's Bell X1 (Glamorous Glennis) but have to research that some,

Thanks for the the look see.

W.D.

Great job on this W.D. I bet the neighbor boy was pleased to have this - and printed too!

Rockets?  Did I hear rockets?  What crazy somebody is into rockets?  Oh... wait a minute.   ;)

Seriously, it's a cool rendering.  The fin shape reminds me of a Big Bertha.  What a nice thing to do for a neighbor.  :)
