I can't wait to see your build!

I did one a few years ago and did some mods, and printed some decals.

The photo's 005 show the two booster core nosecone.
The photo's 006 the Orion's fairing and launch abort system and the second strage interstrage covering for Delta IV.

The Orion's fairing is very poor, and the second strage is crooked!
