I'm updating a sim of this specific rocket, and I need to get this info... I've been in touch with Mike Fisher, and I've designed this .ork file with everything I know about the actual rocket. According to him, it didn't use rail buttons, but glued on ACME Rail Guides. I've found a cross section image of the ACME Conformal Rail Guides, but I need to know widths, weights, etc.

Any help here will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Jim




The redundant DD charge wells are speculation.

Some facts about the prototype:

The bolts that hold it together are Phillips. The motor retainer was made from sanded and painted PVC, and this rocket wasn't originally a 54mm design, the prototype is a 38mm powered rocket. Mike stated that he also installed the eye bolt to the forward CR in the event that he wanted to remove the baffle.
