Hey Sandman (Gordy)
#1
Hey Gordy, I finally built your Nike Hercules (4 x 24 mm) and I feel sorry for those who didn`t buy the kit when it came up for sale (a couple time I think) cause once built, it is a piece of rocketry artwork.I gotta say ,it did kick my ass once or twice (the balsa transition)but brother ,what a beautiful rocket it is once built.I`ll tell you now  ,I will never fly this thing....never !Too much of a museum piece ,but thanks all the same for kitting it up !!

Thanks Gordon ,for making something ,others would not !

Now houz bout that Scud ??

Cheers

Paul T

I am just finishing mine up, hopefully flying it next week. Decals, then glue on the fins, clear coat it and let her rip!

It is a beautiful kit and great looking missile ,looks great next to my recently finished TLP Nike Ajax ,on which I used Sandman`s sweet decals (ordered some years ago)
I really do love Gordon`s decals ,they make the kit !!

Yeah Paul post pics of both the TLP kit and Gordy's. Wish I would have snatched up one of Gordy's when I had the chance.

Well, there was a lot of talk on TRF about the Launch Pad Nike Herc but whenever I posted anything about the Nike Herc I get flamed or the admins delete my post because they feel I'm "soliciting".

I will NOT pay those guys a freakin' penny!
I'm a sandman, I've never killed anyone, I terminate runners when their time is up.

Nor should you! The relationship between manufacturers, vendors, flyers and clubs is symbiotic. Charging the supply chain is NUTS!
