Yes, that's sweet. Was the original you sold white?

Are the weapon pods modified BT-5 cones?

I would love to see plans for that model.

Yes, it was.

Actually it was my daughter's idea to make a "girl's" version of the Galactic Pirates rockets.

She even came up with a scenario where the hero's girlfriend went to save her man from the bad guys.

I have to dig a bit...it was two computers ago i did that.

I saved everything, I just have to find it.

Oh, and by the way, anyone who wants scans of the Excalibur's decal sheet, instructions and templates, give me a yell, I'd love to share the wealth

Take care, be safe, and keep 'em flyin'

If it's K1345, I have one.

Wow, Gordy, That is really good lookin'. Kind of sexy in its own right, like the old Jag E-Types are. If you don't release the 'plans,' I hope you will consider kitting it.
The cannons give that 'look-don't touch-don't get too close' appearance.
Very nice!

That IS the original model and the only one I built.

The gun pods were something I turned from scraps.

Default I Found It!!!

I FOUND IT!!!!

It wasn't here but in the old TRF Archives!!!

http://www.rocketryforumarchive.com...re&pagenumber=1

I'm working on a replacement and I'll post pictures as soon as the batteries charge up in my camera.

I have run into one small snag.

Wikipedia has it spelled

GUINEVERE

and several other sites have it spelled

GUENEVERE

I have it spelled "GUINEVERE" so that's what it is!

I'll start a build thread.

Yep, this looks like a kit to me.

Now I have to build another one.

BTW, it does fly great!



I could have sworn I had a picture of it, but all I found was this one:
