Default Obscure plan

I've spent the last week or so building this whenever I got the chance to sit down. I posted it on Fecebox and was surprised that only one person knew what it was supposed to be, but quite a few thought it was something else. Not Estes or D.O.M., but it does use Estes parts. Any guesses?

Looks similar to the Estes Ganymede 274 DOM in the tail section. the Ganymede had a taper in the front to a larger diameter nose cone.
Just a thought.

Chas
I have thoughts...

I saw your “Fecebook” post (I am stealing that!). Like Peter Alway, I thought it was the Ganymede—“something” design. I searched forever and could not find it. I saw the correct name, but have no idea where to look. When someone guesses the correct name, do please reveal where the design is “hidden”!

That was everyone's thought at Fecalbox. I didn't realize it at first, but they're pretty similar.
BTW, the burger place we went to at the Lebanon NARAM took second place in the Cincinnati burger bracket. It lost to another place I enjoy where they cook burgers on a hotplate and also sell fried bologna. Legit burger. Also a great beer selection.

FECALbox... I like that.

I was thinking Ganymede as well. Neat design.

Since I normally view YORF on an iPhone, reading posts is hard enough, let alone searching thru this tiny boxes at the bottom of Jimz. Moving to the big screen I viewed some of the PARA files, in addition to the Bandersnatch.

One of the more interesting plans/cartoons/poems I have ever browsed was The Garbage Man One, complete with the Poepoo poem, and lots of caricatures to apparently make the building process more entertaining.

Definitely worth a look.

Both of those names are great.
