Big a$$ rocket of the day - Melvin



Featured on one of my favorite stagnant web sites, Trailer Trash Aerospace, Melvin was made from two plastic water barrels, a stainless steel salad bowl, 12" sono tube and 3/8" plywood.  Built-in handles helped get the 95lb beast to the pad.  A 5", three grain, KNO3/Sorbitol motor made for what looked to be a pretty cool flight. My kinda rocket!
