I agree. I like building regular rockets for the reasons you stated. I also like retro-futuristic rockets for almost the opposite reasons. They tend to be outlandish in an old-fashioned way and I appreciate nice curves (on whatever).

Antenna pods, eh? They'd be easy enough to make and they'd add a bit of interest and differentiate it from some other, similar rockets. I may do that.

Again, thanks for your insights and the Alway tip.
