Presenting the Stink Bomb

Here's my paper mache version of the Toypedo rocket. The quality of the surface stank from the start and continued to deteriorate as, I guess, the middle layers totally dried. I started to try to clean it up but ended up throwing in the towel.

I then started wondering about paint and a name. Motivated by the movie Caddyshack. I was thinking about painting it brown and naming it Is that a Baby Ruth in your pool? Or, maybe just Baby Ruth. I found that my existing brown paint was unusable and went with a camo scheme. The name became Stink Bomb.

I think I'll fly it out of a section of window tint tube, which is just a bit larger than standard 3" tubing.
