Model and photos by Matt Wedel, California, USA
Matt has flown this V-2 using B6-4 and C6-3 motors, and has found that no parachute is necessary given the light weight of the model .

Mr. Cruise, USA
This rocket was modified to take a D12 motor, and Mr. Cruise reports that it flew very straight and high. He mentions that the centre of gravity was adjusted to about 10 inches from the nose of the rocket, and that the D12 is 'overkill' for this model (an A or B should be sufficient).
Models by Mark Hamilton, photos by Tom Beach.
Mark enlarged these V-2s to 5-1/2 feet (1.6 metres) tall, and launched them with G64 rockets. Truly impressive!
These models are featured in the May/June 2004 issue of Sport Rocketry Magazine.
This model was reduced to 1:100 scale, but still looks great!
