LPR sci-fi something developing
Have a LPR sci-fi something developing along in sort of a make it up as you go process to fit a general theme in mind.
Progress will be slow.
Main body is BT-60. Larger pods are whatever the Estes SR-71 Blackbird uses for engine detail, BT-50? Small pods are BT-5.
Still to make boat tail.
Still to design front end.
Is going to wind up a heavier low altitude model but that's okay, am building for looks. Two blue guys on base are 1/72 scale. Will probably call model 1/144 scale. May well paint it white and slap Pan Am airliner decals on it.
Am kind of looking for an interesting nosecone in BT-60 size for it.
Now, just what precisely the definition of "interesting nosecone" is remains rather nebulous at present.
What counts a top and bottom of model isn't settled yet. Am leaning toward calling SR-71 engine side the top.
Oh, yeah, haven't used Open rocket before, might have to use it on this after a get-acquainted project of simpler nature.
Oh, one more thing, body tube forward of dark ring has not been cut to length, that part isn't decided yet.
