    DC/SAM

    The DC SAM was a plan released in Apogee's newsletter 83, all the way back in 2002. Yup, Shrox is like one of the long term features of our hobby. So is Tim Van Milligan, since his newsletter was all the way to 83 by then. (Not to forget that Tim goes way back to some helicopterin' annal of rocketry history.)


    This is a BT-50 sized rocket, but I also made a BT-5 sized downscale. But, I'm keeping the baby version to myself and not posting pictures, cuz it wasn't really a Shrox design.
