Steve Eves sounds off about his new project

Steve has provided some info and clarifications about his latest project (via Rocketry Planet):
There are some inaccurate info in the article I will attempt to set it straight. The project is a 1:9 scale Saturn 1b total height is 24' 7" tall, the rocket should weigh in at around 600 lbs empty.(estimate) The booster has 1-6" and 4-4" motor mounts the sustainer is a single 6" motor, this is a two stage rocket. The fins on the second stage will be pneumatically deployed after separation and ignition of the second stage will be achieved with the aid of a computer. Flight should be late 2010 or early 2011.
See my previous post, which includes a photo of what I believe is a part of the rocket.  I bet Liberty Launch Systems/ROCKETS Magazine will develop a page to track this interesting project.
