Looks great!

Did the Centuri version have yellow and black decals also? I don't think I've ever seen a color photo of one.

Thanks, Tim!
Yep, the Centuri SST had black and yellow decals also. Semroc replaced the Centuri in the rudder decal with "Semroc." It also says "Semroc 2005" on the outside fin circle decals, around the lightning bolt; I don't know what, if anything, was written on the Centuri original. There's a color shot in the 1972 catalog over at the Ninfinger Model Rockets site.
BTW, speaking of decals, this part of the SST Shuttle decals always got me. Here it is next to the OT's "vent" decals. Perhaps it was Centuri's way of acknowledging the debt to the OT???

Here is what the Centuri Original decal looked like.

There are pics of an original SST Shuttle flying alongside an original Orbital Transport back in my Day Five NARAM pics. IIRC, the guy who flew them was even wearing a Semroc cap.
Speaking of which, are those Semroc caps for sale, Carl? If so, are they on the website?

That wuz me! I had just lost my Mars Snooper of the same vintage (early-mid 70's) on a C6-5 so I powered the OT and SST with B6-2. Both just did stay in the cut grass part of the field.

I had just gotten that Semroc cap from Carl.

You LOST a Mars Snooper? Where and how? Was this a tree incident? If you can give me a general idea of which way to look, I'll see if I can turn anything up.

Yea, shock cord broke. Lower section tumbled into the weeds somewhere around the dirt road to the right side. I took my eyes away from where it fell to follow the upper body that was thermalling away to the east northeast. When I gave up on that five minutes later, I spent an hour looking for the lower section, then a couple of hours the next day.

I checked the BMWQF award to see if it had become part of the trophy, but no.

We've had some pretty lousy weather since then, but I'll check the QUARK lost & found just in case. My Groove Tube upscale seems to have found a home out there also. For the second time.

Yea, I figured the rains that came on Saturday morning as I was driving out probably did it in.

Bill, if you are checking anyway...see if anybody found my mini Astron Sprint. That thing is only 9" long and it landed on the right side of the road about where the SEMROC booth was.

One can hope! But i think I'll just have to make another one.
