    Looking for a copy of the original drawings of the Atlantic Research Corporation Arcturus sounding rocket. I've created an AutoCAD drawing (in PDF format) based on existing drawings of the ARCAS and direct measurements of the Rocketarium kit and the ARC sales brochure, with SWAG (Silly Wild Assed Guesses) of the fin shroud, which is cobbed together from the HV ARCAS. Can anyone help? (It's not in Morrow's Small Sounding Rockets book and CD.)

    I was thinking of building an actual size Arcturus but the Madcow version only has 54mm motor mount. Sent an email to Madcow but never recieved a response. Any thoughts on just building the Madcow kit modified with a 75mm motor. Remember this is a thin-wall fiberglass kit.

    I am sure Mike at Madcow would swap a 75 mount he has done it for me on my AGM58 and Double Shot booster. You usually have to cut the fin tang down your self but that’s no big deal.
