A new year, a new name

Well, the HART BEAT rocket is finally 99% finished and on the 10th June 2019, after spending just over £200 on paint and supplies, the rocket has gone to my good friend Lee for him to paint.

My Level 3 rocket was going to be called HART BEAT, following my first 2 big Rockets – HART ATTACK, and HART STOPPER, but after going through many colour scheme changes, I decided to have a bold, bright rocket instead.

So again after more talks with friends and family, the new name and colour scheme was decided.

SO HART BEAT has became – “GARFIELD EXPRESS”

The rocket will now hopefully look like this when fully painted.

Garfield express rocket COLOUR 4

Its current specs are as follows.

Length – 11 feet
Diameter 7.5 inches
Weight – 30kg (probably will change)
Motor used Pro 75 M1400 classic (may change)
Estimated altitude 4,000 feet
Estimated max speed 300 mph

Lastly after looking on E-Bay I found a company that sells fake fur material, and one of their designs is called GOLD TIGER.

2019-06-12 17.15.14this looks very close to Garfields coat, so I have ordered a few metres of it and then will hopefully get it made into a tube which can be put over the rocket whilst on display.
