The first few customer provided images are from Eugene from Florida.  He had a very unique approach to building the Deuce's Wild! and I think you will agree that it makes this "Wild!" rocket stand out even more!  Eugene had this to say about his approach:

"What started out as an innocent FlisKits Deuce's Wild has now evolved into something meaner, stealthier, and futuristic. This is my rendition of what would happen if the government got a hold of this rocket and turned it into an intergallactic fighter. And yes, this is the real deal, not a drawing or concept!"

 
peart_deuce01.jpg (42187 bytes) Stephen Peart was so thrilled with the construction and performance of his Deuce's Wild! kit that he just had to send some pictures of it for all of us to enjoy!

On the right is a static image showing the patriotic scheme that he selected and on the right is its maiden flight.  This being Stephen's first cluster we are thrilled that he chose the Deuce and that it worked out so well for him!  Congratulations Stephen!

deuce_swimmer03.jpg (14562 bytes) You'd never know that this is the same rocket, same paint, same color.  Interesting paint, that's for sure!   Thanks Alan!
deuce_vetter01.jpg (16970 bytes) Dear FlisKits,
Enclosed are a few photos of my Deuce's Wild kit. I finally finished painting it and had to give it a try. I have never flown a cluster model before. It flew great the motors both ignited, and it flew straight up Beautiful flight. It has flown
twice so far. My son Jeramy loves it. The duel smoke trails are really neat. Thanks for a great kit.
Sincerely,
Larry Vetter
deuce_vetter02.jpg (10352 bytes) And we have LIFT OFF!
deuce_paint_dean01.jpg (70064 bytes) The Duece's Wild has finally flown on the left coast. I managed to get a flight in at the LUNAR
launch today. I finished the DW in "stock" colors, replicating the look on the kit card. I also downloaded the decal design Jim posted here a week ago and created some decals for the fins. In the pics you'll see the Duece's Wild logo on the left fin and the LUNAR and BAYNAR club logos. The rocket is designated "DW #14" because it is the 14th kit produced, according to the card in the kit.

The flight was AOK, with both B6 motors lighting quick and a straight boost and perfect retrieval. I did get a few melted spots on the chute, but nothing else to report. Folks at the launch seemed to enjoy the novel look of the DW.

Dean

deuce_swimmer02.jpg (23622 bytes) When FlisKits got the chance to see how Alan finished his kit, we asked for some more pictures
Here is what Alan had to say: Thanks for asking for pictures of one of my favorite kits, the "Deuces Wild". Including them in your photo albums will be an honor for me. The Deuce with the Duplicolor Mirage paint is gorgeous coupled with this unique kit I'm sure it will be a hit with other rocketeers . I can't wait to take it to the next launch. Again, thanks for asking for the pics.
