    Purpose? Exterior String on a Vintage Model Rocket

    Hi, I am a new member returning to the hobby 50 years later. I recently purchased a lot of 1960's model rockets that I am sorting through. One of the models has an exterior string attached to the body tube. I've never seen this before. Can anyone advise the purpose? Photo attached. Thanks! Michael
