Been thinking of building a new rocket but no real ideas. Came up with a couple this morning though.

That Phantom Cruiser would make a cool parasite glider.

Isn't the first one the jet of Doctor Quest? (yes, I'm that old.)

I loved reading Tom Swift books as a kid. I still have most of mine stored somewhere. Here's his Rocketship that would look neat as a scratchbuild. Those two upper fins could make for a fun flight for GH. ;-)

For sanity, I would just make the Dragonfly with 3 vertical stabs as fins. It really isn't much for design.

The Phantom Cruiser could be lengthened more like a Goblin. Might grind down a balsa nose to a 3 sided point though. Two large fins for the wings and two smaller ones top and bottom.

Still have to dig through my boxes to see what parts I even have.

Isn't the Phantom Cruiser from Spaceghost? I loved that cartoon. Loved Johnny Quest's ship as well.

Yep! I watched both as a kid in the 60's.

That Phantom Cruiser looks like it would fly about like a Cylon Raider in earth atmosphere.

I don't think it would work well as-is. That is why I would lengthen it and make flat fins.
