Iíve been kind of on a nostalgia kick this past year. I saw the Orange Bullet, remembered it from the old Estes plans, and built one. But, it left me wanting for more.

I had a rocket that suffered a CATO and I just felt the need to rebuild. Once completed, I shot some wild metallic orange on it, and suddenly, BOBís your uncle ó its the Big Orange Bullet. It bears little resemblance to the original, but it is orange. Notice how the repairs to the fin area swell, giving it that necked-down cartidge look. (Not by design, the tube area between fins was a bit tricky and added some girth.)
