Masten Hints

On the Space Fellowship forums, Ben at Masten posted the following a few days ago:

We've been working on fixing the old engine modules and changing the various parts that need changed for this vehicle, as well as fixing the two engines that have issues from the crash. I built casters and caster adapters for it (code name Pollux so we can move it around the shop. We stuck the modules on today so that we can finish up the LOX plumbing, which Wayne (the intern) has been working on.

I expect we'll take a photo and stick it up on the blog later this week. The new 36" tank for 0.2 should be showing up as well, and we'll be doing some more abusing of the new igniters.
