Exclamation New Design -- Centuri Achilles 1.00X

I *could* blame Bill "Vanel" Cooke for inspiring this one.

From the "back pages" of Centuri's Model Rocket Design Manual (1970):

Don't forget to print out the fin template page at "actual size."

Also note that the nose cone shown in the plans (PDF p. 15) is actually Centuri PNC-74, *not* PNC-76. Semroc's substitute is BC-734P.
