    Cool Wildman Punisher 4x4

    So, at this year's MWP banquet, I won a Wildman Punisher 4.
    Griffin has declared kits won at the banquet must be built by the next banquet... He knows me too well
    So, after brief stop at Wildman's for some accessories, I have a pic of the rocket w/o fins. I you zoom on the pic, you can maybe see where my Punisher differs from all the others... Yes, I added a payload bay. That's not it.

    It looks at least partially built (nose cone on body tube). This is clearly different from most of your other rockets, which are still in pieces/in bags.

    Yup,
    Decided to go with 4 fins... Tim shook his head and fired up the tube slotter. Nose cone tip is somewhere with the bag of fins. Unloaded from MWP in a hurry, so stuff just got in the house, not where it's supposed to go. I left it in the corner with the others to remind me to start sanding...

    Actually, Dr Reese needed the box my Punisher came in, so the box is on it's way to sunny California. I have to build it soon, or I'll loose the parts in the jungle downstairs...

    Adrian, I call foul. The fin thing is a diversion...

    I consider myself a slow builder, but these FG kits are child's play. Suffering from MWP withdrawal due to lack of flights I got to my corporate apartment and in two evenings build this:

    Well, you have a similar life like me (living in two different locations), but you don't have kids to feed before you can start to build... Or a GF (that we know of... ) at the other house that doesn't allow epoxy in HER house... And broken fences at her stable that need to be repaired (a LOT...). I know, excuses, excuses...

    Hey, I'm not a slacker (just have a limp that's a bit annoying)... In fact, I have a kid and 5-yr old g'son living in my house right now and just bought a house for him and am presently in the process of remodeling the whole thing so they can move in (and I'm still building rockets ☺️).

    Well, progress has been made. I know, pics or it didn't happen. So far just boring stuff like washing and sanding has been done. When the glue hits the glass, I'll start posting a pic or two. That is all for now.

    And now pics...

    A little pic to show actual progress.
    The Kevlar bridle has been glued to the motor mount, and the bottom centering ring tacked on with CA.
    I talked with Crazy Jim about how to glue both sides of the bridle on at the same time. His response: Electrical tape. Covered the still curing glue with tape and proceeded to do the other side. There was a little learning curve on how to apply the tape the best way, which accounts for the funky patterns in my finished product...

    You know, now as a board member of QCRS, you need to set an example for the rest of us. No more excuses!
