Aerotech Warthog 1

SkyPirate's Aerotech WartHog rocket Aerotech Warthog rocket.

Aerotech rockets are excellent way for model rocketeers to transition to high powered rockets. The Warthog is especially sturdy, although I chose to leave off the little plastic pieces of trim. These just seemed like an unnecessary source of drag.

Stylistically the nose cone seems a little long for a military missile. Descriptively, a warthog has a short blunt snout. I'd like to see this model with a Patriot missile proportioned nose cone.
