I got this part in a Designer's Special off of ebay and I'm not sure what I'd be able to do with this part. Appear to be some kind of satellite payload. The transition section is BT55-60.

I suppose I could super detail the satellite and use a clear payload tube over it. Maybe even add some lighting.

It may be that its two separate parts that are molded together at the factory, like they do with the Estes Black Brant II parts. Is there a way to tie a shock cord and parachute to the satellite?

It is also the payload/transition for The Estes Geo Sat LV.

Wow! I had a feeling when I saw the picture of it in the box it might be something good. This is better than I had expected. Thanks, guys!
