I saw a photo on the Retro Rockets Facebook page of Belgian cartoonist Hergé Comic Series named "Explorer's Of The Moon" circa 1954. Today I spent some time on CAD and on Open Rocket running some simulations to see if the rocket on the cover art is feasible for a flying model. The plan is to turn the body on my wood lathe out of pine or basswood, and build 3 ply laminated balsa fins and balsa fin pods. Looks like E15 or E30 will be the most economical motor. Clusters are possible, once I've proven it stable. Upon further review it needs the fin pods updated for more of a boat tail look. Here's some photo's, screen shots and renderings.
