Well folks here is the lil fishy finished.With everything loaded except motor she weighs in at 3lbs on the nose.Clear coated this morning then finished off bay and installed the RBs and retainer.I've never been to the https://www.nefar.net/ launch site so going to wait till I get there to decide on first motor.Most likely it'll be the I161W since it is a Great White and my OCD tells me to fly a white load for inaugural launch.

sim. flights of reloads I have:

I161W 3150'
I218R 2978'
I357T 3155'

I might get crazy on 2nd launch and fly one of these:
I600R 4568'
J420R 4698'
J500G 4863'

Now I imagine these sims are a bit off since the rocksim https://www.leadingedgerocketry.com sent me is a heaver than my finished weight by about 7.5 oz.

Very happy with this kit and would recommend it if you like out of the ordinary 3FNC kits.If all goes well I'll post some launch pix and video tomorrow night.
