Jim Flis asked me if I would build his two Goddard kits as display models to be given to Mott Linn the Clark University Archivist and Keynote speaker at NARCON. Of coarse I said yes. The L-13 is a more conventional rocket compared to his first rocket. I didn't realize how complicated the painting would be until I saw the Peter Alway scale drawing (see below) . Jim gave me the kit with minimal instructions. Mostly just measurements with some templates and drawings as guides. I mentioned to Jim that I wanted to build it more to scale than the kit. He suggested to be more scale to use a BT-5 for the motor tube. He said he could provide me with a new shroud but didn't have the centering rings. I told him no problem. I can cut the centering rings and make the shroud. Made the centering ring and shroud patterns using Payload Bay. First the nice nose cone. Next the BTs glued together, spirals filled with shroud and fins. The balsa for the fins that comes with the kit is 1/8" which is too thick for the scale so I went with 1/16" balsa. The fins are papered with label paper wrapped around the leading edge. Last with nose cone and fins attached.
