This kit came with my order from Estes for around 3 bucks, not a bad deal I think I bought a few. I cannot find the pictures of my build prior to painting, I think they were deleted. Any way built out of the bag and this time I used my Deluxe Materials Sand N Seal to seal the balsa. The large fins were sealed after gluing them to the body tube but the small fins were sealed before attachment. I brushed on 4 coats followed by sanding in between coats. For a non toxic sealer this stuff does pretty good. I did not use primer, just my Krylon white top coat, but I only was able to get one coat on before the weather changed. As soon as it stops raining I will spray another coat of white then the purple.
