    I - well - um.. Yes, yes you could. I'm not going to go into detail but yeah, you can make "red rockets". ;)

    With enough thrust you can make a rocket out of almost anything.

    That really depends on your skills and knowledge. If you have to ask, you probably cannot. People have done similar odd rocs, so it’s neither original nor clever.

    Thought about scaling up one for the first BALLS launch in 1991 after LDRS X. The original premise was "Got the balls to fly a K". No motor certs then, K motor minimum. Ended up flying my Laser LOC 3.1 on a Vulcan K420-20. At the time, a J motor was like an N now :)

    I am with you on that. Humor is great in rockets, but that is a bit over the edge for me. Not exactly something I want to see at a club launch with kids and their parents watching.

    I did like the Estes PortaPot Shot, although I thought it was heavily underpowered.

    I have an unbuilt Kit I will someday build with a D engine mount and rear ejection.

    Then there was the Uranus Explorer . That was built out of toilet paper tubes (including fins and nose cone)

    So I guess I am not too much of a purist :p.

    I have also seen pics of model rockets such as a flying brick

    And a flying hot dog on a bun, the”Shot Dog”

    Hans "Chris" Michielssen Made that one, he’s a master builder. Check out his blog
