Showing some love for this old Thrustline design. It’s one of my favorites. I’ve built three of these over the years. Here are some pics of the beta test kit I did for John.

This was a two stage version I built but haven’t flown yet. 3x24mm cluster on the booster...with its own chute. 1x24mm on the sustainer. Ignited by on board mini timer...in theory...hasn’t flown yet.
