(heavy melodramatic sigh) Okay, *okay,* I'll e-mail you a bunch of my closely-guarded Rocksim files... if you ask *nicely.*

Okay, I guess you already did. Just lemme know when you're ready.


Sheesh.

That's not what I was angling for. I just don't know if I have a burning desire to design rockets as opposed to a burning desire to clone and build existing plans. I'm a pretty boring guy deep down.

I know. I was just pretending that you were actually stringing me along.

(chuckling) Better down deep than on the surface. That way other folks don't catch on as fast.

Okay. Any comments about this latest exorcism?

Craig seems to think the thing needs decals.

A triple-breasted, green-skinned cyclops? (Hmmm. Maybe that should be ORANGE skinned. Maybe in an old tractor color?)
Seriously, you're talking to the wrong guy to be asking artistic questions. I still think that a set of dual exhausts on a V-8 Duster is art.

Actually, the second dangerous thought about this rocket was to get Doug to come up with something Greek-related...

Preferably something tame and "G" rated, not UNTAMED and in a G-String...


Craig...

Here's a picture with the font I've chosen for the name. Sorry, no logo or roll pattern.

I like it, Jay.

Now, can you do this...

Send a TIF image of just that name decal, at 300 dpi and at the full-size that you want it to be on the rocket. Clip around the name image with only a little clear space around the edges [nothing fancy, just make it a rectangular decal a little taller and a little wider than the name itself].

I'll look around and see if I can find something Greek to match up with it. I'm thinking about a fin decal here. I'll throw in a shamefully gratuitous BARCLONE logo for good measure. Then, I'll "package" it all up and shoot the whole thing over to Scott.

Do you think we need any special instructions for this model? It really looks straightforward to build, maybe even qualifying as an upper Skill Level 1, borderline Skill Level 2.

Yeah, I can do that. I just need to decide how big I want the name. I was trying to figure out how to make a "halo" around the letters to help them stand out against the darker colors.

I've been thinking in terms of a (left) human hand holding a flaming torch, with the flames trailing backward. Unfortunately, that seems to work on the right-hand side of the name, and not really so much for the fins, given their slightly unusual shape.

But I *am* likin' the idea of the gratuitous BARCLONE logo.

I can throw something together. It's not really complex (for those of us who are "Experienced" ), it's just a slightly unusual combination of pieces. And the Skill Level 1-2 rating is probably right on.

Well, I'd better get cracking.


Cheers,
