Default "Operation Sandy" V2

OK All,,, here is my latest Canadian Arrow V2 build.

Phred at "Excelsior" sent me a Beta version of the "Operation Sandy" and "Pushover" decals.
Boy are they nice,, but All of Phred's decals are nice.
Hope he likes the result.

Here is the "Operation Sandy" version.


For those that don't know about this version look here:

Thanks,,,, I really enjoyed bulding it.
But,,, it was definately a military version. It was the first attempt to launch from a moving warship.

Very nice Race! Did you alter the BT length and fin size for this, or did you keep it in standard CA form?

Looks really super! I'd like to build one some day, too. Maybe in the scale of the Estes and/or Centuri sized kits. Are you going to fly it?!

Thank You Dave..
Am I going to fly it,,,, Of course,,,, I wouldn't have it any other way. This one will fly on E18 first and then probably an F24.
The next one which will be the "Pushover" or a "Bumper-Wac-Corporal" modified for 29MM.
As you can see I have a fondness for V2's
