I am pondering using a Estes Mini Honest John reconfigured as a WW2 bazooka rocket. This means I would add custom made long fins to the rear of the rocket. I realize I may have to make the fins slightly wider for stability purposes. But, here is the neat part. The mini Honest John "bazooka rocket" would fit inside a 3 or 4 foot mailing tube and the mailing tube would be used to launch the "bazooka rocket" straight up. I repeat, straight up. I would put 3 or 4 launch lugs on the outside of the mailing tube and simply slide the mailing tube down the launch rod. I would build the mailing tube to look like a 1/2 scale sized bazooka. Or, the launch lugs would be on the "bazooka rocket" and an overly large mailing tube (1/2 scale sized bazooka) would be placed over and around the "bazooka rocket". In any case, the mailing tube and the "bazooka rocket" would sit about 8" above the launch pad to let rocket motor exhaust "out". Please note, I chose a mini Honest John for this discussion and not a maxi Honest John. From what I have written, these two ideas appear to me to be safe, viable, launch platforms. It's just an idea and I welcome your thoughts on the matter.
