Tau Zero completed
Well, I took advantage of a couple of dry, warm(ish) days and completed the Semroc Tau Zero. This is a nice looking, futuristic rocket kit that flies on 18mm motors and recovers via a streamer. I especially like the cone, which resembles a sleeker version of the Honest John cone. Anyone familiar with this kit will notice mine looks funny. Different, not haha. I think. First, I flipped the fins so they are swept backwards. This is not optimal for streamer recovery, but what the hey? I also deviated from the recommended paint scheme. I used Dupli-Color METALCAST, with the base coat serving as the color coat for most of the rocket.
