The Frankenstein MLAS

It was resurrected from the dead and is made out of leftover parts, so I think the name is appropriate.  Lets see, what is there to say?

38mm + 4 x 24mm (the 38mm does the work, the 24mm motors would mostly add smoke), separated directly by a piston (piston is hard mounted to lower body), nose and body to recover separately, parts don't fit all that well but good enough (yeah, it's a kludge), it's a tad over 2 lbs before nose weight, fin attachment points are mounted through bottom CR

I need to decide on the extended fin units and then tackle the nose weight.  This sucker will be heavy!  Even more so if I went without the fin units.
