Default Latest Sporket, the Tiger's Claw

Came up with this while watching my lovely wife eating an Enchirito at the local taco outlet.
Custom Rockets Fiesta base.
Put the plastic "Sporks" (hence the name "Sporket") on the edges of the fins. Papered the fins and the sporks together for strength.

Paint job was fun, orange background, then covered with strips of Frog Tape masks, Next a Black Coat, then pulled the tape.

Kind of a 3FNC with a "twist" literally. The sporks all face the same direction, which gives the rocket a gentle rotational spin on launch and descent. They add a bit of mass, so replaced the streamer with a small chute. Very nice little flyer on A, B, and C.

Hope the picture comes thru, my first try.

Tom
