I found the model for Chimera on Printables. I like the concept but I wanted to modify the MMT and retainer, so I beefed up the fin can, so it would accept a 29mm MMT. I also printed one of my go-to retainers and assembled it. Printed in PLA+ with black for the nose cone and fin can, and the body tubes in orange. On launch day, several of us were having issues with nose cones sticking. This one had the same issue and it came in ballistic. It flew awesome.... straight as one could hope.

I have printed another one with some minor modifications (MK2), including a shock cord retainer. The nose cone sits better with some finessing. We will be launching it on 7/15/23
