Orbital Transport Pictures
31 pieces of balsa, 2 nose cones, 1 tail cone, 3 tubes, 1 engine hook, 3 rings, and 2 launch lugs, plus a screw eye and shock cord.
A close-up of the hollow tail cone on the glider. I personally think it's even better looking (plus a hellofalot stronger) than the original.
The belly of the beast, showing the 'scramjet' assemblies, which required 4 pieces of balsa and 2 tubes each.
What it looks like with the glider on the booster.
