Like I said, it is very loose! A boat tail would make it unstable. Moving the two small fins forward to the smaller section would make it unstable. Making the large fins scale would make it unstable. replacing the upper tube with a tapered section would be a real pain.

I think Centuri took the easy path and still would up with stability problems. It takes the large screw eye and washer weight to make it marginally stable with a C6.

It is a nice model, even with its non-scale features.

It would be fun to make the booster fins hinged like the original so they swing out and back. Maybe the Magnum SAM-3 scale might be better for that!

I think this may be begging to be an SLS instead with a 29MM motor mount. Then again I have been told not to think.

Thoughts, suggestions??


Carl, I like your idea, especially with the decal sheet.

I was going to order more but when I checked my personal Paypal account I only had $27.56 in it.

That's why my order was for $27.50.
