This rocket was made entirely of garbage except for the BT-20 that runs through it's center. The main body consist of a Lemon Juice bottle with the BT-20 through the center. The nose cone is made from discarded card stock that is hardened with glue a filled with Epoxy. The fins are from scrap balsa of other builds. The canopy from the plastic covering new lamp bulbs.

Here are the materials laid out.
