Oh dear, between the dialogue, the avatar, and the stiff screwdriver I poured myself, I am definitely in trouble. and it's been one of those days were I got a lot done, but it just doesn't seem like enough.Rocket Babe wrote: I wish I didn't have to work so much...
Remember, every tube should have an engine!
So, let's bring this back on track.
I've gutted my booster, but being in an impaired condition, can't get the concepts and dimensions down. To mate the 24mm to the 18mm for the staging, is there some sort of arrangement necessary, or do I just create the venting hole akin to that in the 18mm to 13mm Solar Flare? Also how long did you make the 24mm engine mount?
Oh, Rocket. You would have been real trouble with my design from my youth. It was named after a young lass I had my eye on in my middle school years, but alas never had the gumption to approach (it was a long story, but along the lines of she was a friend of a girl I was seeing at the time. Always seems to work out that way somehow). Anyways, the TPD Janice IV was a twin rocket (think F-82 twin Mustang) with outside ram jets. I never did build it as I never could figure out exactly at the time 1) how I was going to insure simultaneous ignition of both engines and 2) how I was going to cause separation of both halves for return. Now I might be able to undertake the task, but the inspiration is long lost and I would find it hard to explain to Sandy, my wife of 28 years, why I was building a rocket named Janice.
