This is one I have been wanting. I like the different paint jobs.
My only experience with this is that my Centurion has a baffle. When you shake the rocket, it makes noise. I call it my rattle rocket. You can't shake the noise out of the rocket. I assume this is the same issue. I speculate that there could be enough accumulation of the stuff to change the CG or interfere with the ejection process. I will weigh my Explorer when it is finished. I could periodically weigh it and see if it changes. Mostly I am inclined not to be too concerned. Like Alfred E. Newman said...I wonder if the side tubing are supposed to have remnants of the clay packing which is used to store the ejection charge, i shook some of it out but i cant get the larger pieces out, tell me this is not a bad thing ....
Agree.Theyre pretty easy to slide around when theyre initially wet. I put the point of the decal on the fin ridge, slid the backing paper out from under it, repositioned as necessary, then firmly pressed it down flat
My Astron Explorer is painted after this young mans! He looks proud, like I do!
Looks great! Nice job with the painting, the blue and white in the lower section was not easy.
