Default Upscale Javelin

Just finished a 2X Javelin. I had a couple pro series tubes and a nosecone lying around for ages and didn't know what to do with them. Put in a 24mm mount and considered making a Challenger-1 (my first rocket), but finally settled on the Javelin because I liked the fin design.
Made the decals in photoshop using the Centuri catalog type font and the paint scheme is from an early 80's BMX bike. Should fly nicely on an E-12.

Slick. Love the paint treatment. I'm going the same route on decals for some of my MRI clones, just using the catalog logo.

That is a really nice paint scheme.
What model 80's BMX bike featured that ?

It was a Rampar R10 from around 1982. I used to have one.
Replaced by an '84 GT pro with graphite tuff wheels (which got stolen) and finally an '85 Kuwahara KZ2.
I really miss racing those bikes at the local track. Seems like a lifetime ago!
