Note: I'm going to break my own self-imposed rule and get this build thread started. The rule being, "don't start a build thread until are sure you can make steady progress and keep the thread moving". This will be a leisurely build thread with some significant gaps in the action, and the build is likely to stretch out for a while. Consider yourselves warned. I also still have some issues to resolve, look forward to discussin those here. So: this is my pencil rocket build. No fancy render because OR cannot capture what I'm building exactly, and I'm too lazy to build a CAD model of the whole thing. Those following my half-baked design thread will know all about it. The simple objective is to create as precise a scale replica of a pencil as reasonably possible. Originally inspired by the Estes #2 Skywriter. Should this be in the Scale forum? Ha ha, I kid. The rocket is built around a BT55 core tube, 24mm mount, and will be *roughly* 33" long. There are still some details to nail down, and body tube construction is still some weeks away. Actual build with pictures will commence in my next post. PS: Actual name I'm going with is Skywriter Deluxe.
