I'm not sure why I have them, but I have spare Impulse decals (the foil ones) if you need them.

There were plenty of curves in Utah between Park City and SLC, and on a 9% down grade. If I'd tried to get a picture of that section I would have died most horribly.

Ah Ha! I knew I had some photos of mine somewhere. Mine is painted white. I did this one several years ago. It glides MUCH prettier than it looks (if it's well trimmed and not too heavy.)

Thanks. It's good to see that the Prop Shop is still there. I was there only once--when I was doing a job in Centerline.

I don't know what I was thinking. This finished model is 27.5" long, so the scale is actually approximately 1:8.5 and NOT 1:13 as I'd previously thought.

One fin is now gloss white, the PNC/payload assembly is metallic silver, and the faux nozzle is the same apple red as the main BT.

I've scanned them already.. As for Stickershock23 replicating them, I haven't asked yet, but IIRC Mark cannot do the ultra-fine printing within the blue circle in vinyl.

I’ll ask anyway.

I seriously need to stop screwing up! I don't know where I ever got the idea the nozzle was supposed to be silver. It was black on the old Estes version and it’s red in ROTW.

I'm using ROTW for the reference. Your photo DOES kinda-sorta make it look like a boattail though. Maybe it's just camera angle.
