J Harland's entry cuts a stunning vision on the launch pad.  Jim Flis has seen this model and it always attacts attention.   Designed for 24mm motors, through the wall (TTW) fin mounting is recommended for the large fins.

The email from J Harland has this to say:

Jim, Great Idea [the DOM]. I have attached an entry - Perhaps you saw it at the
CMASS launch Sat 5/10/2003. It is built and has flown several times at
Amesbury. It is very stable and looks great on the pad.
Tips - thru the Wall installation on the rear fins is recommended.

No images were provided so an email was sent to request them.

Jim, All I have is RocSim. Here are screen prints from RocSim. The
rocket is built & has flown several times in Amesbury at CMASS Launches.
You may have seen it last Saturday(5/10) on my table - Paint is Gloss White
with red metallic chevrons on the body tubes - called "Raptor".
