I’ll be there with the food, including tasty hot dogs, chips, cookies - and a jar of ghost pepper relish for those who wish to put the ‘hot’ in...
Good tip - I’ll probably 3D print something for flights.
Done with fin attachment, now getting into all of the small fiber and wood parts.
Starting fin attachment - a pleasant, relatively easy part of this otherwise complex build!
Done with the capsule construction. Turning back to the main build.
Is that just the retainer cap? Is there a second part that mounts to the body tube that this part screws onto. Would love to see the design.
Thanks - getting near the finish line!
Thanks. It has some flaws for sure, but overall came out well. Definitely the hardest part of the build.
Major construction of the capsule completed. Need to add the engine shrouds and attach the coupler.
Working on the upper struts for the capsule tower. Took a bit of a break from this build to work on some other rockets and do general life stuff....
Finished the detail painting and applied decals on my Fliskits Morning Star. Decals tricky on this one, especially the ‘L’ shaped ones....
Lower struts completed. Tough working with such small pieces.
Main part of the tower completed. I need to carefully sand away some excess glue here and there, but mostly satisfied with the outcome.
Thanks Mike, it seems like the right way to go.
RE: my puzzlement as to dowel size, I’m making an executive decision. I’m going to sand down what’s left of the .058” dowel to .041”. Between that...
Previous images show the cross piece sections drying, and then one of them installed. The kit provides the assembly jig that you see in the second...
Thanks! It is not in production though - erockets does sell the capsule.
Maybe you can help me figure which dowels to use for the upper and lower struts. The instructions only say to use the thick (.058”) ones for the...
You never know (but I’d bet the over!)
Me too Mike! Have a long way to go before it’s ready though.
