Well this thread will show the build ect of my 2nd ever 2stage rocket.
Shes based on a 2" dia tube , with a mmt of 24mm to 24mm. Using Airfoiled 'THOR ' style fins. Attached is a scanned picture that I made whilst in a Electronic lesson earlier today. This is the first desin that I came up with. Some slight changed to be made.

Hey, isn't that the rocket from The Handbood of Model Rocketry?

Looks good!

That would be a neat thread--show us your rough sketches and then the model they turned into! Nick ought to make that a Descon requirement...

I was thinking of a complete red metalic paint job with chrome or silver flames/stripes.

Well If it's the rocket from the Handbook Of Model Rocketry , It's a coincidence because I dont own a copy :( Yet ;)

There will be a few more 'scan in's' of different designs I come up with . Im lucky I found this tube , A nice 1mm wall & a good legnth :D I've cut the booster off & made a coupler. Now all she needs is a nosecone , fins & motor config.


Thanks
Karl

Heres the design I was going to copy. It was my first ever attempt at making a 2stage rocket. She flew on a D12-0 to D12-7 in January. Booster fell away and the sustainer lit perfectley. She drifted just out of the launch field using a streamer and just could not be found . She was a BT-60 rocket with a Patriot style nosecone. Painted in Plastikote Copper & Custom decals made by moi :)

She was over 6ft long IIRC.

The distance that the cracked/burning propellent would have had to travel out of the booster to sustainer. It was my first attempt at gap staging also.
