Default Nice work!

and very impressive detailing on the nose/seeker. (Actually, on ALL of it)

Now you better pray hard to the rocket gods that you don't get a prang.

Maximum pucker factor when I launch this, but that's pretty much true of all my scratch builds....

Probably gonna put some blue tape on the dome when I launch, just to protect it from scratching upon landing.

Hope to fly it some time before winter, if I can make it to a launch.
Looks fantastic Neil!
