Exclamation New Design Sketch...

Shooting Star is based on Series-8 tubes and nose cones. The length is about 24". It has a PPB nestled between two rings of ST-20, some open-frame fins, and a larger BT-101 ring attached at the tips of the fins and stabilized with dowel stock.

Power is 18mm B and C, but I'll have to see what RS has to say about the A8. RockSim 8 might be able to simulate this one now, as I don't see anything other than the matteboard chines to be an issue. The chines can be simulated as fins in RS8...
