The good news is I actually made progress with repair and repaint projects with an eye for flying on Saturday. I cut and attached a new fin on a ten year old Centuri ThunderRoc clone to replace one that has disappeared in the years since I last tried flying it. The Semroc SLS Scorpion that I got on closeout last year finally has paint on the fins and should at least look the part if the weather godz see fit to allow the launch. The RDC Starflite has been repaired and repainted. It has a checkered past; two flights, one a giant CATO, the other an ejection charge snap back that crushed a fin. Should look almost good as new.
