Exclamation New Design -- 0.44X Centuri Littler Hustler

Here are a couple of ST-10 based downscales from Sept. 2006.

The first one is a 0.44X version of the Centuri (Semroc) Hustler, with the Little Hustler color scheme. (Talk about the "best of both worlds." ) Please notice the 1/4" long RR-7 which secures the engine hook.

I'm very impressed with the simulation results, but not entirely surprised, since this was one of Lee Piester's early designs (IIRC). Sometimes cool looking rockets fly great, too!
