I've had to fix a few cones...

While a drawing like this may evolve into an engineering drawing, or perhaps catalog art, I see it, at this stage, as being used to start the board room discussion.

It's sort of a Powerpoint...

One of my regrets moving from my boyhood home in Kentucky in pursuit of career is that my kids didn't grow up around their grandparents. My mom is an awesome 1950's homemaker - she's scrubby dutch on...

My daughter sews. My mom made many outfits back in the day, many of them quite involved, and all done on an ancient, nearly worn out old Singer, IIRC. Mom used to cuss that thing every time she used...

I've never seen a kit with that feature, either. I wonder how it works. And, if it uses pyrotechnics, I wonder how it doesn't violate the safety code.

I'm glad to see you extended the finish onto the payload section far enough to cover the shoulders. I suppose, around here, most folks do that. But I've seen a few over the years that left me shaking...

It's a 50, 51, 52....

You describe a different animal, a SPEV, which is a category unto itself (that probably doesn't get enough respect :) )

That said, we've seen plenty of stuff launched at the...
