Hello everyone, got an interesting one here today. What is the proper marking(s) and/or symbol(s) for center point/midpoint, balance point and/or center of gravity? I attached a drawing so please help me decipher everything; a, b, and c. Now before everyone starts jumping up and down remember I haven't done any serious model rocketry since 1974 and back in my day (1969) we just took our home built model rockets (normally a kitbashing of two or more Estes kits with some parts from the scrap box for good measure), tied some string around the body tube, found the balance point then did the John Wayne "Hatari" thing over our heads a couple of times to insure stability in flight so please take that into account before chastising me for my ignorance on this topic. Your inputs and tutelage is truly appreciated. Reach for the stars and beyond everyone!
