Default Space - BIS Long Playing Rocket

The mesh for this has just been released here:

This is a British Interplanetary Society design for a rocket that might have been the first to achieve orbit. To avoid the ambitious sounding orbit, (it goes up but does not come down?!?! Science fiction!), it was given this innocuous name. This was by analogy to the recently invented long playing record - a sounding rocket that stayed up a lot longer,

The original design only had one illustration by the under rated RA Smith I could find, so there was not a lot to go one.

It's lightwave format, and rigged with two 'cyclist' controls, for easy synchronised opening of the hatches and deplotment of the arms.
