Lightbulb New Design: SLS Double Duty

I was very excited to see that the original Double Duty worked so well and is quite a sight to see with the booster parachute recovery. The only problem was that it is small to see and the color white make it even harder to see in a overcast, white, sky.

Here is my first go at a SLS design with the SLS Double Duty. If built, a few parts are custom such as the CR-9125 and HTC that I used for the first stage is the JT-70E cut to 1 inch long, hoping the it will fit the LT-225 with a little extra glue. Also it will be required to cut a 3 inch section, for the booster stage, off of the LT-225140 and the ST-930 will be cut to 2.25 inches for staging fit.

PS. This is my "best guess" on the heavy duty parts for the SLS design so any input would be appreciated.

Enjoy and Thanks Again, JP.
