OK, we are building a scratch build rocket. It is a 3.9 inch PML tube and after all is done, it will be about 34 inches long. We are using a balsa nose cone and plywood fins(3/16"). It is going to be somewhat of a fatboy. But, the paint job we give it will make it very retro. We are basing it "60's" style. I will post pictures very soon. Flight plans- First flight, we are planning something like a Redline H148. Other flights- We are planning to use an I300. This should get us about 5,000 feet and just over Mach I if all goes well. All in all, it should be quite a nice one to add to our fleet. Pictures soon.
