Blue Arrow?

One mainly for the Brits I think… I have been reading about the British rocket program, “A Vertical Empire”, and came across a proposal to mount a Black Arrow on a Blue Streak as a second stage, from 1963. Nothing came of it, but as I have already CGI meshes of both the source rockets, I thought I’d try making one. It is 34 metres tall, and I have called it Blue Arrow in the absence of any official name. What about the nose fairing? The red shows the ancestry most clearly, but if I am going to call it Blue Arrow, Blue seemed more appropriate.

I studied astronomy at University College London, but failled to get my degree. For many years pre-internet, I ran the bulletin board "Starbase 1", which is why you will frequently see me referring to myself as that! I am currently on the board of the IAAA. I operate exclusively in digitals using many different software packages. Most often Lightwave 3d, Vue, Photoshop Elemnts, Affinity Photo. I also ejoy oddball graphics packages like Xenodream, Amberlight, aqnd others.
