Okay, I may tag team this one with you (you do the Jersey Version, I will do Tennessee)It's not a good, just a side effect of the way the fin can is constructed. Viewing it from the side it reads correctly. From a 3/4 view you get the wrong version.
Thanks for that. I figured I could put some actual holes in the fins as well, and put the decal around the hole.
I was actually thinking of @BABAR 's rockets when you posted that. I would work very well structurally for this rocket, the only downside is would it look as good? The two halves of a single stop sign would not be even with each other. On the other hand, it would eliminate the existing weirdness in the fin can. I suppose I should do another OR file for that variation.
And again, I have not decided to build this yet, although it is getting more interesting... see list above for other candidates.
Full square rocket body (sides will open as brakes), fins will have to be centered at 90 degrees to the sides. Basically take your box tail on post 400 and extend it length of the rocket.
See fins on Spyder 10
For yours you could use balsa, basswood, or even picture matting to make the sides. May need through the wall/side mountings for the fins.
Mine won’t need any tubing or even an engine mount.
The bullet holes will be great for me, I need some holes to stick the rubber bands through.
Rear eject on yours is gonna be rough on your nose. I am trying to think of the Estes rocket that ejected the nose cone with a “speedometer” on it, I think the nose cone was some kind of NERF material.
Edit: Estes Speed Freak
