Wow, that looks really great! (screenshot attached)

I guess you could use the ST20 size for a full SLS model also, would be pretty impressive.

I did that a few years back ,with a paper nose cone of my own design. Now I can replace that paper one with something more stout,

Wow, that is an impressive rocket. Do you use removable fins for flight, or is that display only?

Removable fins shared between 3 different rockets.

Here is the initial dry-fit of parts for the Centuri Screaming Eagle with the printed fin can with SEMROC body tubes/balsa nose cone. The nose cone has a few coats of sanding sealer and a couple of coats of Rusto2X Gloss Apple Red, sanded and ready for final top coats. You can see how the engine tube extends a tad bit too far out the bottom of the fin can, but there should be enough margin where I can trim that off and mount the engine thrust ring a little higher in the tube to compensate for that. Body tube is naturally white, I am on the fence about painting white over it, or leaving it unpainted. Still have to do more sanding to the inside of the fin can to have enough tolerance to get the engine hook to fit in there with the engine mount tube.
