Easy enough to do with existing Estes plastic nose cones if you like:

Front nose cone is PNC-60NA (Stormcaster)
Tail cone for front section is PNC-60AH (Der Red Max)
Front cone for aft section is PNC-60L (Big Bertha)
Front cone for pods are PNC-50K (Alpha)
Tail cones for pods are PNC-50Y (Nova Payloader)

Balsa versions of all the above are also available. If I can find it, I did a fin template at one point - I'll need to look for the file if there is interest.

Sure - the files I have are all in Adobe Illustrator format right now, so I'll have to convert them to pdf when I get hope from work this evening.

(The upscale of the BNC-50J had to be done by me, the BMS one didn't look right. I also did the rounded cones for the top of the three tubes. I still need to cut fins and centering rings -- I think I forgot to have BMS make those. The toughest part was upscaling the three BT-5 tubes. I used 29mm MMT but had to splice for length (> 40"). I think I'll reinforce on the inside of tube with carbon fiber arrow shaft to make them rigid.

I'll pull it out of storage a take a few pictures. As I recall, it will be over 7 feet tall.

Here are the two files - one is the "Super Trident" plans and fin template. The second is the fin template from the original Trident. I added 1" squares to both. Enjoy!

Frank,
I think I saw that amongst your various posts about your RC rocket gliders. Very attractive. I may have to get a Trajector kit or two to bash into something similar.

And I really need to finish the upscaled OT.
