    I finished this a few days ago (almost, it needs clear). Evidently it's been known for quite some time that the stripes in this kit don't go all the way around the rocket. This one was no exception. I don't know why they don't fix that. I used left over decals from another kit. Box stock paint job.

    Looks very well done. Did I miss the build thread?

    Thanks bradycros, but no, you didn't miss the thread. I didn't do one. As kits go, this one left a lot to be desired in terms of kit quality. Nothing that can't be over come, but have some centering rings handy, some spare decal material and a fresh tub of F'n'F.

    I had kept a photo log of the Acacius build and was planning a build thread for it. However, my machine lost it's hard drive and I lost everything. My external HD lost it's way a couple of months earlier and I procrastinated about replacing it. There's a thread about this exact sort of thing in the "Watering Hole." Just about a week too late for me. Alas. Lots of photos, music and work down the tubes.

    Thanks fellas, I appreciate it. The directions called for fluorescent orange and yellow (not that I ever follow painting directions—first time for everything). I found a can of orange road marking paint in the basement and used that for the fins. I can't recommend it—it comes out like water from a fire hose (slight exaggeration), but I practiced with it before hitting the rocket and got lucky.

    That`s a beautiful rocket ,very well done :handshake:

    This kit has been on my radar scope for awhile ,i`ll have to look into it.

    I`m not sure what problems you encountered ,besides the decals ,but overcoming the problems you surely did.

    Cheers

    Stock kit is a single stage. Some folk are planning to make the mod. Some have tried it already. The problem is booster core-sampling.

    Hey Bob!!! Actually, I modified mine. The separation point is at where the Nike booster transitions into the Orion. I'm afraid the orginal Quest design was..........well.....dumb. She flies GREAT on Quest C6-5's!

    Welcome to the SCALE Terrier Orion Gallery on TRF.

    This gallery showcases the Terrier Orion sounding rocket and those rockets derived from it. Particularly appropriate in this thread are the following:


    Quest: Terrier Orion: #2015



    as well as any upscales, downscales, clones, kitbashes or other derivative works. Even Goonies qualify!



    The Terrier Orion is a combination of the Terrier booster rocket with the Orion rocket used as a second stage. This spin stabilized rocket configuration is most often used by the Goddard Space Flight Center, who operate out of the Wallops Flight Facility for sounding rocket operations. The system supports payloads ranging from 200 to 800 pounds (91 to 360 kg), and is capable of achieving altitudes as high as 200 kilometres (120 mi), but at least 80 kilometres (50 mi), depending on payload size

    The Terrier Orion system is designed to be rail launched, and can be supported at most fixed and mobile launch sites. The Terrier MK 12 Mod 1 or Mk70 rocket used for the first stage uses an 18 inches (460 mm) diameter motor along with 2.5 square feet (0.23 m2) or 4.8 square feet (0.45 m2) cruciform configured tail fins. The Improved Orion motor used in the second stage is 14-inch (360 mm) in diameter and 110-inch (2,800 mm) long. The system typically uses spin motors and has a total weight of approximately 2,900 pounds (1,300 kg), excluding payload.

    The Improved Orion motor uses a "bi-phase propellant" system which provides it with around 19,000 pounds (8,600 kg) of thrust during the first four seconds of motor burn. The thrust then tails off to approximately 3,000 pounds (1,400 kg) of thrust until burnout occurs at around 25 seconds. The fins are normally configured so that the rocket will have a stabilizing spin rate of approximately four cycles per second

    I finally finished my Quest Terrier Orion model. It got put on the back burner for about a century while I was taking a break / working on other projects.

    This Quest kit was a pretty straight-forward build. The top tube from my kit had a nice dent in it, so I figured it was the perfect place to add a half-moon baffle, not only to strengthen the tube but to anchor the kevlar shock cord. I completely reworked the finishing scheme - I couldn't find a single photograph that matched Quest's very Nike Smoke-ish scheme. I based my colors (loosely) on a few pics I found online. The paints are Rustoleum Gloss White and Warm Yellow, and Duplicolor's Inferno Red Metallic. A few of the kit decals and some black striping were added for detail. As others have noted, the kit decals include stripes that do not meet around the body tube.

    My Terrier Orion weighs in at just below 3 ounces. Open Rocket puts the optimum delay for a C6 motor at 4 seconds, so I will probably pick a C6-3 or C6-5 depending on the conditions. Hoping for a calm day to fly it soon.
