Talking Cherokee Double-D


Back in August of 2004, on the OldRockets list, we had this discussion about a two-stage version of the Cherokee-D. Our general consensus was to start with the C-C Express...

I've sent Scott a set of modified decals and a set of fin templates to build one version of this model. This version has the booster fins reduced in size to 85% of the originals. The booster fin decals on the new sheet are reduced accordingly.

Thanks to James Gartrell for his original "Cherokee DD" name decal. The decal sheet I created borrows from his pattern, but uses the "D" of the original Cherokee-D. Since I can now post the images here on the Forum, I'll attach them to this message so anyone who wants a set can try it out...

The decal sheet here is in JPG format, but the version I sent to Scott is a TIF, with perhaps a bit more resolution.

Also included is a copy of an alignment guide that works well. Attach the pattern to a thicker piece of cardboard and remove everything inside the outline (you may have to use some sandpaper to adjust the opening...), and it will hold the fins in their correct positions while the glue dries.
