Exclamation New Plan -- Spectral Queen

Here's a challenge build...

This model is a cluster, but the main body tube has no motor tubes inside. The engine pods are actually the motor tubes, with the deployment gasses vented through the pylons into the main tube. An internal stuffer tube reduces the volume of the pressurized area to allow the pair of 13mm A10-3T motors to deploy the laundry.

The pylon patterns shown in RocSim are distorted in the 3D rendering, but it's the distorted view that needs to be cut. The pylons are supposed to contour around the tail cone in the way the 3D image makes it appear.

RocSim says this model will actually fly, and fly well:

(2) A10-3T.....198'.....6 FPS

I'm setting this as a Skill Level 3.
