I'd been considering building a rocket for a while. I've decided to go ahead and do that. But every time I'd look at a kit, it just seemed so . . . well, already built. So I'm going from scratch. Here's to not blowing myself up. (I do sort of know what I'm doing).
Anyway, the building of said rocket is not so much what prompted me to start the thread. It's just a simple single small-engine tube rocket. The interesting thing will be seeing if I get the streamer to deploy correctly. Since I'm building it out of inexpensive materials, I won't lose any sleep if it doesn't.
The part I'm torn on is what colors to paint the rocket. I was going to go with the traditional white and black, with some red accent details. Then today I was thinking blue body with yellow nose-cone and fins, sort of like the retired "blue angels" fighters.
I had thought about doing all white with the UT logo on the fins, a-la the banner logo, but I think I'm going to save that for a second rocket, in which I try to mimic the swelled body shape. That'll surely end in catastrophic failure, but that's half the fun.
I like a simple two-color combination. What color scheme do you guys think?
