Ordered a few kits during the Mach 1 rocketry Black Friday Sale. This one intrigued me because it was an 18mm minimum diameter FG kit. I've never seen one before and wanted a little kit that I could send into orbit with a D24 reload. Anyhow, some build pics from the first day. I've built several of Mach 1's larger kits and the quality level here did not disappoint, Steve does an EXCELLENT job and everything reflects quality work. Packaging was fine and the fit and finish was perfect. Tubes and fins washed, I tacked the fins on with BSI Maxi Cure. Then followed up with fillets of JB weld. A internal tube ring was used to mount the Kevlar with knots tied on both ends. I added a 1/4 oz of weight to the nose cone to balance the weight of the reload. The JB welded it all together. I printed an 18mm minimum diameter retainer, the mounted the thrust ring in the body tube. Will bake overnight, then add a 9" Bama chute and paint!
