Default My Orphan Brigade

Bored lately, so I've taken to building rockets by some of the lesser known companies. Most of them have nothing in the way of a livery, so I'm forced to come up with something on my own. (Always an adventure. And a headache.)
I think these should show up in the order I loaded them, so #1 is an MRI Zeus, which I've made mini-engine powered because there isn't much room for recovery equipment.
#2 is the MRI Theta 37. I'm sure that name means something to someone, but it ain't me, babe.
#3 is a Canaroc Maxi Challenger. D12-5 loaded into it awaiting a maiden flight on Saturday.
#4 is the Space Age Industries Mini Bat. It's been loaded with a 1/2A6-2 for several weeks now, also awaiting a Saturday maiden launch.
#5 is another Jet Freak, from the NAR plans. I've built so many of these that I've lost track of what number this one is.
#6 is a Bo-Mar Alpha-B. Still needs some work tonight, but if we fly on Saturday, it should be in the lineup.
#7 is the Bo-Mar Spartan. I flew another one a few weeks ago, but the dimensions were off, so I built one closer to scale.

Does the Jet Freak fly so well that you lose them?

Yeah, pretty much. I did have one blow apart from a cannon-shot ejection charge, but I've lost a couple because the A8-3 takes them way up, then they just thermal away. This latest batch is heavily weighted on the left wing tip to hopefully induce a circular glide path, but who knows?

There's a real SAI Mini Bat for sale on eBay right now along with a Here Comes Da Judge. I like seeing people build these obscure kits.

I bid on The Judge, but I don't expect it to hold up.
