Good thing I grabbed one of the last ant-scale Falcon Heavies...

But they will take charge too late to save the E9 and C11 motors, unfortunately. I'm going to miss them, as the C11 was the only viable booster below D impulse for 3 stagers like the Comanche-3, and the E9 was noted for its unpredictability - you never knew whether the rocket was going to have a flawless flight or disappear in a fiery cato, with pieces flying everywhere. Those of you who have flown E9's know what I mean - that twist of the gut that happens as you start the countdown from 5. It will soon be a thing of the past, at least for BP motors.
Finally, 2018 marks the 60th anniversary of Estes; they have come up with a very nice logo to mark the occasion:
I think i'm going to have to put this on a Scout, an Alpha, or a Bertha - trying to decide which. I'm also wondering what will be a good 60th anniversary paint scheme.
