Default Hammerhead Shark.. The Rocket

This scratch build started as a result of seeing an Apogee Skonk Wulf and thinking that it looked more like a shark than a Nazi weapon of war.

Then when I was making the drawings for the rocket I saw a "Shark Week" slot machine that had a Hammerhead Shark and thought.. hmmm that would be cool.

The build has been really fun. It's got fin tabs and papered fins. I tend to build more for durability than altitude.

It sim's in Open Rocket just fine. I tried my best to make the hammerhead neutral.. meaning not an airfoil that would pitch the rocket.

So tell me.... what do you think?
