Tarkus II-dot-1

Here is the Tarkus II sporting its new shiny nose cone bottle.  I also added two small cones to the previously empty tubes on the front end. The original offset nose precluded adding cones to these tubes.  You can also see there is no green plastic bottle on the clear upper stabilizer.  I've been pondering my options here, including using a Guillows foam shuttle.  It turns out that the size and shape of this clear fin is pretty close to the upper stabilizer on the Space Shuttle, to I could slot the rear end of the Guillows shuttle and just slide it on (and paint the exposed clear fin white).  However, this looks out of place so I'll bide my time.  I'll also probably adjust the larger flat plate in the rear.
