So, I was flipping through the new Sport Rocketry magazine when an awesome rocket caught my eye. It was a rocket in the shape of Big Ben in London. The picture was taken at the 3rd annual Ljubljana Cup. The fins protruded from the edges of the clock tower and were painted like the Union Jack. Anyone else see this rocket?
It got me thinking about other famous buildings that could be made into rockets. I'm wondering how they made it. Perhaps they used one of those 3d models or a card stock model, or perhaps they built it from scratch? The magazine didn't provide any details other than the motor it flew on (Serb Ultra E44-5).
I've often thought it would be fun to build a rocket with an art deco look which is my favorite architectural style. The Chrysler building would be perfect! Unfortunately the bottom of the building is Much wider than the top which would make it extremely draggy. Anyone got any ideas on how to pull something like this off? Maybe the Eiffel tower would make a good rocket?
