That Tintin is incredible! The paint and checkerboards really look great.

And I like your method of using halves of balsa cones and adding them onto the fin ó I may have to ďleverageĒ that idea!

There are three RDC catalogs posted in Ninfinger, plus their Ballistics Manual. I provided two catalogs for scanning.

Looks like Iím the one who sent Sven the Ballistics Manual - forgot about that.
It came with a bunch of stuff that a friend dropped off when he was getting ready to move. A large Estes range box, Mini Max Hustler, assorted motors from mid to late Ď60ís were included among other things - not a bad haul. He probably would have thrown them out if I hadnít been home when he called.

Set the wayback machine to July 12, 2006 for more RDC chit-chat:

I did get around to replacing the Cardinal's fin. The original builder used gauze reinforcement on the fins; haven't decided whether or not I'm going to replace the rest of them.
