Default A new not-quite-finished scratchbuild: 5.3:1 Sport Scale Pencil (Skywriter Deluxe)

This is basically finished except the Lexan fins are not installed yet, due to some ongoing issues exacerbated by the coronavirus situation. My willpower has failed me and I'm sharing pictures now because it's cool, and who knows when it's going to be finished finished.

Rocket is BT55-based, about 32" long, 24mm mount. Build thread is over at TRF. This has been a very fun project.
