Bob-
Your Maxi-Icarus clone seems to be missing the clear payload section.

I didn't have any PST-60 at the time I built my Maxi Icarus clone.
I substituted a piece of BT-60.

I didn't have any clear paint either, so I used a fluorescent bulb sleeve. I cheated and turned my own nosecone because the PNC-60AH wasn't a perfect fit.

Clear paint? Do you buy that at the same place as portable holes?

John, may I suggest something like the Q-Modeling upscales of the Mars Snooper and Starship Vega? Based on the interest when I show up to fly them there must be some interest in a large market release (and the spring loaded legs are cool). I'm not sure what became of Q-Modeling and Google didn't provide much help (I have a vague recollection that he got flooded out but...)
Also I'd second the request for something like the K-21 Gemini Titan.

Would REALLY like a 29mm upscaled Mars Snooper II with the spring loaded legs the Q-modeling one had. Missed out on the first run of those and the 5-year-long "coming soon" return of Q-modeling has turned into pure vaporware.
