So dear readers, here is "The List" for this winter:
- Big Bertha - No brainer. No fleet is complete without a Bertha, and mine was put out of commission at the Rocket City Blast Off.
- Beulah - A Big Bertha derivative, featuring a two motor cluster. Inspired by Chris Michielssen's Big Girtha.
- Centuri Micro-Probe clone - One of the best looking 2 stage rockets ever designed.
- S.S. Cestris by Sirius Rocketry - Been wanting to build this kit for some time.
- Estes Gyroc clone - Always wanted to build one of these "Helicopter recovery" rockets. A classic.
- SpaceX Falcon 9
- Estes Scrambler clone - The quintessential egg lofter. never had one of these as a youngster, though I really, really wanted one.
- Estes Orbital Transport - Yes, it will be a pain to build. But it looks and flies so cool... love the glider!
- Tiny Tim scale model - Have the parts, have the design, time to get this puppy built.

This will keep me busy for a bit. And if I know me, there will be some other rockets built this winter :)
