    Shock cord

    Because the main BT50 tube extends all the way from nose to tail, there was no MMT centering ring to hook up the Kevlar to. So I was thinking about just putting a 2050 centering ring about 12" down into the tube, and using that. But I'm thinking I'd rather have a bit more of a shelf there, in case I choose to use Estes wadding sheets in this one rather than dog barf (getting dog barf into a BT50 is not fun in my experience). I could imagine the wadding sheets pushing through that hole.

    I know Rex R once posted that he uses exactly what I'm describing (a CR with BT20-sized hole) and it serves adequately as a shelf. I'm not sure. Anyone have any good suggestions?

    If I had been thinking I could have used that same stripes pattern on all three triangles, so all sides would look the same. It really disguises the hook.

    Like it! Really clever detail.

    if you want the others to match, you could add similar black stripes: a decal or a sharpie could do the trick to duplicate the appearance of the decal over the engine hook.
