Started building this a week or so ago, but just now getting to post photos.
Photo 1: Boxes ready for opening. Also had to ship my toolbox/rangebox home for the christmas break to work on rockets.
Photo 2: I'd forgotten how nice is is to build a rocket from a kit. You open up the box and everything you could ever need is in there! No running out to the hardware store 15 times, every time you realize you need another eye bolt
Photo 3: Motor mount getting wood glued together. Rear centering ring will go on after the rear set of fins are attached and filleted, and the kevlar will get epoxied down next.
Photo 4: Ave bay. Looks solid. Probably way more solid than necessary, but hey, I don't want that to be the failing point.
Photo 5: Fin slots cut. Just like the good ole days of Estes, I got to cut my own fin slots. Out came the exacto knife and an old trashy coupler I use for everything like this.
