I printed mine using white PETG. I used 50% infill for the nose cone per the designer's instructions, but I used zero infill for the tail cone to save weight and to help keep the CG forward, plus PETG is stronger than PLA. The fins are through the wall clear 1/16 polycarbonate. Decals printed on Avery 8.5x11 clear shipping label.

It is a heavy rocket, so definitely needed to be 24mm as designed and printed. But it flew very well on a D12-5.

Everybody that 3D prints with filament has experienced the spaghetti pic I included where the first try at printing the tail cone lost adhesion! Doh!!!
