Last year we had a topic for winter projects. I have the Torrent project which is a separate topic but I am curious what other members are working on. I'm also wondering where people paint their rockets. Outdoors in your yard, in the basement, under an over pass, a garage? Since I'm at a stopping point until I can paint the Torrent, I'm thinking of taking a road trip to the Spare Time shop in Marlboro to pick up another kit and support a local hobby shop.

The kit I purchase last Saturday at the Spare Time Shop is an Estes Chuter-Two. I was skeptical about getting two chutes in a BT50, not to mention chasing after two separate sections. I modified the kit so that the air frame is one section with one chute. So far I have installed the MMT and three out of 4 fins. It's a fun kit to build and I look forward to flying it in Acton and not have it land in a tree or power lines Ha Ha. I'm even thinking of painting it.
