Default Semroc Stellar Arrow Released

Semroc just released a new kit the Stellar Arrow. Itís interesting for Semroc in that it has a plastic nosecone, plastic screw together couplers and a tail-cone retainer. I think this is the 21st new kit released by erockets-Semroc. Itís BT-60 based and has stylized Arrow fins.

Fun fact - the local rocketry club members - from Wright Stuff Rocketry - have a weekly build session at eRockets and they pretty much came up with the design as a group.

I would love to see what nosecone is being used and how the tail cone retainer is being done.

I would change the paint scheme. Looks too much like a flying pencil.
Fins would be painted like feather quills and circular bands placed on the shaft, like the vintage arrows. Similar to the OOP Estes Fletcher.
