That's cool.

How did you manage to do that with the larger image that you see when you hit the thumbnail?

It's just a crappy old version of ACDSee that messes everything up. In my shop I use an old Dell Latitude D630 laptop. And messing with pictures is not its forte. :) And its a terrible iPhone picture.

But it's a Strega. Man I want to build so many other Barclone designs. Just need the time.

I'm bumping through these old posts with some renewed interest.

Jeff, did you ever get your build of the Strega to fly? Is it yet in primer, anyway? :D

Yes it did
 
It did. And fell prey to the only A10 I have ever had fail

Notice in the next picture the booster. Is there supposed to be flame on the side?? :chuckle:

That is painful to look at.

Ouch!

I won't ask how bad the booster looks now, with that obvious burn hole in the side...

What about the upper stage? It staged just off the rod it seems, so did it receive much damage on impact? Fins or tube crunch?

Model looked great, though. Hope you're able to salvage something and build a new booster for it.

Yeah, turning into a land shark would rip fins off. Just hoping for the best...

That is certainly an unusual photo!
