Default Finished: 1:3.5 sport scale IRIS-T

The long adventure is over. This time I even attempted to take good quality photos (although my effort apparently stopped short at setting up good lighting).

Hope to fly it some time before winter, if I can make it to a launch.

Great job on the detailing! That really turned out nice. I like the TV camera nose.

Thanks all. I have tremendous respect for the work of you guys, so it means a lot.

Having never done a scale scratch build before (or, for that matter, any significant scale build at all), I really surprised myself here in my interest in getting as many fine details correct as possible.

And yet I still look at Saturn V builds and think "not interested in all that detail."
