Tarkus II progress

As you see, I decided on a tube fin for the upper stabilizer. I'm pretty happy with it.  Probably happier than I am with the new nose.  I'm contemplating painting the outside of the bottle.  Now I look at it and it looks like a wine bottle.  I also trimmed the big clear fin so it doesn't extend beyond the tail cone.  The only other thing I'm considering is whether to find something to fit on the exposed tip of the clear stabilizer. I'm not sure, however, that I want any other random pointy attachments.

This was kind of a dog on a G64.  I think I may wait for the new high thrust load for the 29/40-120 case.
