Thanks for this video. I have one of these kits in a box with an SMT bay to build around a Loki 38-480 case. I can see how the Kevlar was intended to be threaded on the fins better now.

Is this truly min. diameter?
Seems there is a tube inside holding motor, which that tube is really a 38mm airframe......do I have it correct, or am I missing something?

No, it’s not truly minimum diameter as it is a BT60 tube and requires the stuffer tube to fill in the extra space. In the end it is about .75mm wider than most true MD rockets.
