A 3 sided box... made from cardboard, or perhaps 1/32 balsa. Then use small body tubes or straws attached to that to simulate the 2" and 1" tube that was used on the real thing.I meant what method were you going to use to construct it. Seems like something the laser could knock out quickly, but back in the day, many people stick-built the structure. Since yours was more of a 10ft model vs a 6" model at this stage, I was just curious.
It seems that you might be changing directions with the purchase of the 1/12 model, though, so no need to get into the details if you don't want to.
or, better yet,
I've thought about making a plunger arrangement where a small rod runs from the cluster motor down through the capsule. The ejection charge lifts the plunger / rod, which trips a clasp on the bottom of the capsule to release the parachute. That would allow for an open tower.
