Nike Goon Build, Part 2, Scaling to a BT-60
I found this picture at RocketReviews.com, from a build and review by Matthew Bond.
This is the Goony version designed and produced by Excelsior Rocketry.
I dropped the Estes picture into Corel Draw, the original is on the left.
That was stretched to the diameter of a BT-60 at 1.637" wide. The stretched version is shown on the right.
Some adjustments were made. When stretched to the BT-60 width the fins were too wide.
Drawing it this way makes it closer to the Estes kit profile even though it is now wider and shorter.
A line tracing was made and copied to a new page. This gives a pretty clean representation of how the Goony version will look.
