Exclamation New Design: "Mars Voyager"

I was watching a Mars special on PBS about a month ago, and one of the computer animations featured a ship very much like the front end of the design below. Since it wasn't stable by itself, I whipped up the lower section, which oddly resembles the Centuri "SPACE: 1999) sustainer.

I'll have to revise this post later to add a parts list. All components are Semroc, beginning with the BC-2032 (Centuri PNC-231 "Orion") cone.

RockSim says this model should fly nicely on a C6-3.
