Zoomie P-51D, the final update

Well, other than a final clear coat, I guess this rocket is done.  The final trim scheme is a very 'goonie' version, incorporating a V2 rocket girl logo, an MDRA logo, and  numerical designation matching the motor she will fly on.

As I mentioned earlier, I bought a pack of Testor's clear decal sheets.  I roughed out the decals in GIMP and then sent them to my other computer so I could make the background transparent.  The decals came out less than perfect but are fine for a first try.  I'm going to post a full review of these decals with all the details of how I applied them.

The nose cone weight provides a margin of 0.9 with a D12-5 loaded. Should get to around 600'.
