High Visibility Dave provided a little more info on The Forum That Shall Not Be Named. Including this:

Actually, Iím only assuming that EZ2C means highly visible. Itís possible that heís claiming to have zero rest mass, so he can accelerate to the speed of light.

Attached is a drawing I created using the artwork in an earlier post. It would be a 1/10 scale Ute. The transition seems to be similiar in shape to a Semroc Nike-Tomahawk but it would need the larger end resized to fit a Series 15/BT-58 body tube. If the transition was drilled out for a BT-50 tube, then staging would be possible. As scale staging projects go, this would seem like a good choice.

As noted on the drawing, the Semroc I.Q.S.Y. Tomahawk could be used as a starting point for the second stage.

The boattail could be paper or balsa. Paper would seem to be preferable if you build as a two-stage.

I'd build it. (if someone would turn the transition . . . .)

Identifying a problem without proposing a solution is just whining.

Got my "fingers crossed", in hopes that the data is still available . . .

Sorry. Nothing to report.
A dark night in a city that knows how to keep its secrets. But high above the quiet streets on the 12th floor of the Acme Building, one man is still trying to find the answers to life's persistent questions. Guy Noir, Private Eye.
