+1 to what jetlag just said.

N2H4 is always fun stuff.
Blended with glow fuel you can get about 50% more power out of a glow engine for ONE RUN.
After that the engine is SCRAP.

They should do it with an open smoke-stakk with zero filtration blasting black soot into the air.

You could just let the E12-0 hang out the bottom of the booster by about 1".
I flew my Omega that way; E12-0 to C11-7.

Use contact cement for the wrap.
Do NOT TRY any type of super-glue (CA) or tube-type Testors JUNK.
For building the tower use Tenax 7R or Plastruct Bondene.

I don't think we will ever again see another man-rated NASA "owned" launch vehicle.
Way too much congressional PORK and not enough focused initiative to ever get it done.
It will be private sector....
