Craig,

Just so Marvel Comics doesn't see the sheet. Those D's look very similar to the front of the costume on a certain blind lawyer's red, horned alter ego. They might make you put a TM or something on it.

Lance,

That would be a coincidence, believe me. I'm not a comic book collector, so I wouldn't be familiar with the character you've described. I was simply using the existing "D" insignia from the original decal. Overlapping "D"s are seen in other artwork, so I think the context has a lot to do with it...

I'm going to work up a larger fin version of the booster to see if I can get the stability needed without the nose weight, but you've got to admit, 2200' ain't bad!

I've already built this version, it just needs all of the finishing work to be done...

A new copy of the RKT file will be available soon, showing the enlarged fin arrangement.

Craig, if you already have the fins made up in Rocksim try putting the 86% fins on the upper stage and the normal fins on the booster? I'll try this myself if I get time tonight.

Better than that, you only need to lengthen the sustainer with a 3" payload section and a balsa nose block. I tried this in one of the simulations, and it came out at just over 1 calibre stable.

I'm attaching two additional RKT files showing some variations on our theme...

I was refering to DareDevil, good logo shot here: http://www.emerchandise.com/product...0003/s.LhsTx4hg . I didn't think it was intentional, it just immediately brought him to mind for me. (I was also attempting to make fun of copyright and trademark holders overzealous tendencies to litigation as well. Watch out for the brassiere manufacturers! )

I think a better decal for this rocket would be a buxom Indian gal. Kinda like the old WW2 plane nose art.

This is what I think of when I hear Double D.

(Heavy sigh.) I remember when it brought other things to mind, but I have kids now.
