It’s Been Too Long…

February 4, 2013

I’ve been out of active rocketry for over two years, doing other projects and dealing with life in general. The special project I was involved with back in 2008, building one of the Sat1B table centerpiece models for the luncheon in Dallas commemorating the 40th anniversary of Apollo 7, took a toll on my interest in building rockets. It was a rough eight weeks of details and painting, and I still haven’t developed a desire to get back in the swing of things yet. Currently, I’m doing more with RC airplanes, getting really into antique designs from the late ’20s through the end of the ’60s. I have three models in various stages of progress — A Cyril Shaw “Envoy”, a Vic Smeed “Mams’elle”, and a Keil Kraft “Falcon” — all being built from plans. Good therapy.
