Pretty day at Bong and a decent boost on an E12-4 as the first two pictures show. The third shows that it was way underpowered. It...
I'm hoping my notes will help the next builder... plus it makes me feel better.
Here is mine for this weekend.
A few things I noted during my build/finishing.
1) I should have been more diligent on filling...
Looks like you won something... add the roll patterns in a darker gold and go with it!

How about we just watch these and leave it to the pros?

I *knew* there was a reason I have been stuck on this wrap... I stopped cutting/gluing them with this wrap. Now I know why. Also, I guess maybe...
I wanted to give myself flexibility to go with 24mm F's. Also, when I built one in my youth, the motor mount took off a split second before the...
Here is what I did on mine, still for 24mm motors but you get the idea. You might also note the internal launch lugs.
