Freedom Forge Missile
By: Daren Humphries
Winner, May 2003 Design of the Month Contest!

2003 Design of The Year Winner!
Watch for a March/April announcement about this exciting design!
Freedom Forge Missile

Daren's entry has a most unique military cruise missile look to it.  It has simple, clean lines yet boast a level of complexity and detail that will excite all rocketeers.

The email from Daren has this to say:

The Pictures are pretty straight forward and should help with construction. This rocket flew very straight and was fun to build. I recommend painting the dowels before gluing them in position. It’s best to custom fit each dowel. I used a 3/32 strip of card stock soaked in water then wrapped around a scrap piece of BT-50 to form bottom ring that the dowels attach to. You want it to be at least a 3/32 profile. Once dry slide onto the BT-50 and glue into place.

No other special instructions that I can see. If so please ask and have a great time flyin.
