    OK, I'll be the first to admit that there's not much to this one. It's a simple build and the tubes are precolored as is the nosecone. As best I can recall, there is just one simple decal. Even so, I suspect that this is a rather ubiquitous rocket especially among new members of the rocket community. I say that because, except for Estes, this one seemed to be the one rocket that just about all the hobby shops around here have. I can't believe that nobody has dressed one up.

    Mine is just stock but kids seem to like it. My TRF thread for it is here: http://www.rocketryforum.com/showthread.php?t=7458

    Don't think small, John.

    I upscaled my Razor to a BT-60 tube and 24mm motor mount.

    As soon as it's painted and decal'd, I will post it.

    You might also consider posting your Razor to the Tube Fin gallery.

    And you still have the Cyclotron, right?

    I guess I will put it there also.

    As for the Cyclotron, it shredded during my L2 attempt. The "if it fits, it flies" maxim, sadly, did not apply.:dark:

    I built this Custom Rockets Razor early in my BAR career. It's simple and rugged, and has even survived a couple of rocket-eating trees.

    I sprayed a coat of yellow paint over the pre-colored tubes just to give a more finished look. I also sprayed some black lines at the top of the BT since I buggered up the decal. A crepe streamer works great and keeps this one from drifting away.
