Default New Design -- Scorpion

Here's another quickie, though not as simple as the Pug. This one is more along the lines of the Estes Interceptor and Quest Intruder.

The canopy is modeled in RS as a chunk of balsa, and should actually be more rounded than the simulation allows. This piece could also be created in clear plastic sheet, vacuum-formed. The engine intake cheeks are also shown as balsa chunks, and can probably be left this way. Again, this is a limitation of the simulator. You might choose balsa sheet to form a hollow cheek set to reduce some weight, but probably not much.

There should also be 6 simulated cooling fins attached to the motor tube, for show...

500' on a C6-5. This is the preferred motor.

Enjoy.
