- Reaction score
Well, I score the paper only at the fold lines at the leading edge. and I thought I had them all lined up on the paper and scored them all at once, but one of them was a little bit off center. At the tapered thickness changes, i just drape the outer skin and burnish it down a little. I try to not crease it, but it kind of just happens that way. No need to score at the ply-changes.Do you score the outer skins at the taper lines?
Thank you! I had never heard of this one before, but it just showed up on some news article at work and I was intrigued by the history of it and really like the roll bars and fin patterns. There is no way I would try to mask and paint one like this, and can't do my own white decals, so a cardstock print of the complex white on olive pattern was really a good alternative here. I would encourage anyone to print one of these and build one themselves, and post a picture of it here, or go for an upscale with a traditional build. I modified the sharp point at the nose tip, those get easily damaged on landing, so I truncated it a bit and put in a short paper rolled dowel for strength.Excellent! One of the best looking and most interesting card stock rockets I have ever seen.
