While this one's not strictly a BARCLONE entry, I rounded up plenty of "in the wild" pictures of my "Tau Zero" design, which was designed in the glare of public scrutiny right here on YORF:

Here is one I built a while ago - replete with Ion Cannon...

Always liked this design. It can be a little finicky to finish, but it simply looks good when completed. Sorry about the blurring.

Here's my Tau Zero I built a while ago. It flies great but I think my shock cord is too
short (or I chose the wrong ejection delay) since I have a nice big "Estes dent" in my
nosecone.

Wouldn't that be a "Goemmer Dent" ?

Jay's "Tau Zero" Prototype I

Here are some photos I unearthed from the maiden flight of my "Tau Zero" Prototype I on October 21, 2006.

The launch location is the site of Dad's old farm southwest of Jerome, Idaho. None of the buildings are there any more, but you can see the neighbor's barn "across the fence" from where our farm used to be.
