A new rocket motif - steamjunk (?)

I made some progress on the Raygun Gothic HoJo boosters.  It came down to two options:
  1. Cut some BT-50 motor mounts and buy some nice cones from Semroc, or
  2. Use the scrap, thick walled, 24mm-compatible tube that my daughter scrounged for me and the ends of plastic termite traps for the cones.
Wanna guess which one I chose :)

Since the rocket is kind of steampunk style and I'm using junk to complete it....it's now steamjunk.

I want to get a little further along before I bother with any photos.  I may yet hit the send button on the Semroc site.  But, I'm fairly confident that these will work out.
