    Boyce Aerospace offers a 3D printed Nike Zeus-B. The buyers needs to sand the ridges and grooves left over from the 3D printing. Primer and painting help. Decals are provided by the buyer.

    It separates right after the checkerboard pattern that is above the 2 fin sets. The first two stages are glued together. Conceivably, it could be made into a 2-stage rocket, but the first stage would probably not have a recovery system.

    Bob....that is a great thread...I have been eyeballing the Nike Hercules that they sell....might just have to pull the trigger. I do build a lot of plastic model airplanes....sanding never one of my favorite things to do but to build a Nike Hercules in LPR it will be worth it I think! I sense a future build thread....
