Here are two prototypes for kits I've just released. Both are based on BT-80 lightweight tubing from Balsa machining, and the estes PNC-80BB nose cone.

First is the Daedalus, inspired by the X-37B tiny shuttle used by the air force on clandestine missions. It uses 2.6" lightweight tubing and plastic nose cone with a MPF wing with single carbon spar and V tail made of 6mm depron. 34" long, 23" wingspan, 10.5 ounces ready to fly using a 24mm rocket motor.

The second is the Marauder cruise missile, based on the 1950's Mace and Matador missiles, I wanted a swept wing, but the MPF is a little too flexible for thin swept wings, so I made a delta with with elevons, and hid a portion of the wing using black trim vinyl, the advantage is you get a large wing and light wing loading with a swept wing look. 32" long, 20" wingspan, 10.5 ounces ready to fly.

Both of these use markings from stickershock23 that I designed with them.
