That came out really well, worthy of display.

Thanks Marten.
But I think I may be undergoing cardstock fatigue now.
Time to get back to the regular stuff.

I think it looks good.

I've eyed the Oriole as a possible 1/5 scale project to go with my Talos, Terrier, Nike, Malemute, Tomahawk, and Apache collection. But it's 4" at that scale. Pretty big.

BTW would the Terrier-Oriole combo be the TERROR for short?😄

that just looks like a good candidate for a 3-stage gap stager. When are they going to make a C5-0 booster motor?

The Terrier-Oriole might be my first scratch build in over 20 years, but not at 4"; like Charles said: too big.

The LOC Terrier booster is 3" and mates to a few of their kits for a first stage (Iris, BB, etc). Any kits out there that resemble the Oriole?

***Edit - I may ave posted this in the wrong place. Didn't notice this was a cardstock thread.

I don’t know, a 3” diameter card stock model might be interesting. Even if it as a saucer!

Fun build, though I thought it was a PITA at the time. 😄
