Thumbs up 1.37X Centuri Javelin

This grew out of my experiments late last fall involving a 137% (ST-7 to ST-10) upscale of the Centuri Vector-V. It's my very first rocket on a slightly bigger scale.

From the attached RockSim 8 file:

Special thanks to "GIJoe" in Spokane, Washington, USA for posting a photo of an original silkscreened fin, and including a ruler in the photos on YORF:

Intriguingly enough, with this particular "enlargement factor," many of the original Centuri designs end up with higher deployment velocities than I'd like (shrugs), but there you go.
