Default More designs

I posted a while back about my rocket designs and attempts to fabricate one or two of 'em, and some of you may remember the faux rocket company design work I played around with for a bit. But there were some designs from back then that I didn't present, and I wanted to throw them at you for your comments.

No better place to do that than here, IMHO!

The third one looks like it may be something from the Odyssey, Rigel 3 and Dark Energy family.

I really like Pic 4 in the first group, the two stager.
That, and the first one in the second group! The Hornet on is my favorite.

Two questions -
1. What software do you use to draw these with?

2. Being from Bradenton, do you fly at any Florida section launches?
I should be at the Tampa TTRA this Saturday with the JonRocket trailer.


Great work - keep them coming!

I do all the 3D modeling in a free prog called Wings3D (recommended, if you have a taste for that sort of thing) and then I export finished models from there to another prog (not free) called Swift3D by Electric Rain, where I add textures, materials, scenery & lighting. It's a great prog to interface with Flash (CS6 - the latest) to produce animations and the like, as well.

I have not been out to any of these launches, although not for lack of desire.
The few launches as a BAR I have done have been on my own (me and Cuzzin' Mike, that is!)
I doubt that I could make it this weekend, but who knows...?

Well, I'm game.
A few more, for your consideration.

All very nice! I love the exotic designs and the sharp deco on all of them!

True... it was Cuzzin' Mike's idea, and we might actually build it someday for him (once we get the decals taken care of - I know, a few guys here can handle that stuff!)... licensing for a kit would be a headache! It would probably be more bad-a$$ as an MPR or better.
