In my continuing series of rocket designs, I spent some time last week designing a sleek rocket whose fins sweep down the entire length of the body.
It’s hard to see, but rivets line the body on either side of each fin, and along both rims of the engine section. The window is printed in glow-in-the-dark blue because I like how that looks as reflective glass.
Here is the underside, showing re-use of an engine detail that I modeled for an entirely different purpose but have used in several projects since.
It was first designed for a GI Joe project, an ice blaster.
I used that central core (fused into one part) to create a jetpack for a Corgi which I designed and printed for a friend. (I did not design or model the dog, I just used it with my own jetpack design.)
I also used it on my Jetpack Rocket:
