    Where does it separate for recovery?

    It never ceases to amaze me how so many otherwise intelligent people have such poor reading comprehension.

    It separates right after the checkerboard pattern that is above the 2 fin sets. The first two stages are glued together. Conceivably, it could be made into a 2-stage rocket, but the first stage would probably not have a recovery system.

    Rick,

    This model takes a lot of sanding, but it is not impossible. I described my process on this thread.

    Bob....that is a great thread...I have been eyeballing the Nike Hercules that they sell....might just have to pull the trigger. I do build a lot of plastic model airplanes....sanding never one of my favorite things to do but to build a Nike Hercules in LPR it will be worth it I think! I sense a future build thread....
