Well, I kinda messed up my fiberglassing with my scratch rocket. (Running With Scissors) Stucturally, it's great, but finish wise, not good at all. I want to launch the rocket at NSL in May, plenty of time for some people, but for me, I am an extreme perfectionest whan it comes to finishing rockets, and I don't have much time to sand/paint every day. I'm trying the Kilz-sand down-repeat method now, but that's taking it nowhere fast. I have Aeropoxy light filler, I could use that, but it doesn't go on all too smooth. the fins are another problem. Instead of putting fillets on them, I decided to use fiberglass to bond them to the motor tube and I use a bit too much glass. The filler I put on the fins isn't helping too much and if I sand down the glass, the fins will probably shred off on it's transonic flights to come. It seems like I have a lot of work to do... Any suggestions to speed up the process a bit?
