John Simmons's (BAR-05) F-79 Lonewolf

This scratch build / scratch designed rocket was inspired by the USAF Thunderbird Jets and the F-35 Lightening.

It features dual canted 24mm motors and dual rear-eject parachutes that eject from the side pods.

There are no 3d printed parts, everything is old school paper body tubes and wood.

Decals were designed in CAD and printed at our home.  

The "Thunderbird" on the belly was masked and spray painted.
