Default Catalog Question

There seems to be a discrepancy in the name on this design:
http://forums.rocketshoppe.com/show...4&postcount=123

The header says "Sunbird" but the first image in the attachment shows "Starbird" as the name of the rocket.
There is an entry in the catalog for Sunbird but not one for Starbird. Just a goof or are there 2 separate designs that perhaps were mixed up?

The model is named "Sunbird", and the error is mine. There may be a "Starbird", or "Star Bird" somewhere in the patch, but it will take some digging and poking. At some point between the original concept and the final post of the file, I changed the name and forgot about it. I apparently so very forgot about it that I forgot I had named it in the file itself...

Addendum: I could also have forgotten the name should have been Starbird, and just made yet another goof above...

Such is life. I tried not to grow old, argued seriously against it, but my body and mind had other ideas, and they never listened to me anyway.

I certainly wasn't trying to stir the aging pot, I was just askin'. I'd just leave it as is, nobody else may have ever noticed, but then again with this bunch...........

Don't sweat getting older, beats anything the alternative has to offer.

Hehe, no offence taken! Some pots need stirrin' to keep from scortchin'...

I didn't even notice, so it was a good call.

One day, I might even get around to building it...
