Umm... Ahead of the CP?

:grin:

Sorry, couldn't resist...

Pegasus was one of my old favorites and I had forgotten about it until your post!

While I can't answer that, I can curse the memory of yet another .ork file lost in the HD crash.

Yes, and no...

I simmed up the Pegasus up, but due to the lean of the fins (not perpendicular to the body tube), I was unable to get them to work properly (touch, but not go through the tube fins). I was hoping that a future release of OR would fix that, but lost the file when the HD crashed.

I had forgotten about the new-ish tube fin capability.

And Jim is right, you can get close, but can't make OR 'lean' a fin over so it isn't perpendicular to the body tube. Still, close is good enough for me, in this case.

Hmmm... it looks like I've only got about 1 caliper stability when loaded up. Guess I'll have to drill into the nosecone to get some weight further forward.

Looks great. Did an upscale about 2 years ago as a Christmas gift for Dad. Always a favorite around here.

By request, here's the ORK file that goes with the above pics.

NOTE: This file is for a BT20/BT5 based downscale- not the original, which I believe was BT55/BT50 based. (Tube reference double check... yep) It's less than ideal in several ways, and would make Jim/K'Tesh weep with sorrow. Your milage may vary.
