Yes--what range rocket are you looking for? Mid to high-power, 29mm, 38mm or 54mm MMT?

I'm assuming that like the other "Animal Zoo" kits, it will be based on a 38mm tube with 29mm motor mount. I have a cool design I would like to submit but I can't figure out how to attach files or pictures

We would like to use the standard tube we used on the other animals.
Other than that, we want people to use their creativity to come up with something interesting.
We can always scale it to whatever diameter we decide to release it in which will be 38mm.
Because I know some people would be creative with the idea of a free kit and design a 24in diameter kit Tongue

I think I answered the size.
As we can always scale up the animals.

As far as deadline, 11/23/15

Just under the edit window there is a section for attachments.
Click the Browse button and select your file and hit add attachment.
Also if your trying to insert a picture in your post you need the MyCode tool bar enabled.
Go to "User CP"/Edit Options/Other options and turn on "Show the MyCode formatting options on the posting pages"
I had to find it as well.

See the attached screen shot.

The Red Rhino...

I have been waiting for another zoo animal to break out from AMW.
Is this new addition joining the Parrot and Squirrel as the third member of the team or are one of those old guys
being replaced in the cage?

This will be added to the existing zoo animals.
The third is actually the Gorilla that we just got the elliptical nosecone for.
So this will be the fourth kit in the series.
