This LaserX, built in the 70s, that got crushed in storage in the 80s, had a 8-yr-old kid try to make it two rockets and subsequently break it again in the 90s, is now having that same 8-yr-old restore it to the way his late father built it in the 70s.
Thanks to the power of the internet and finally being able to identify what this rocket is.

Very nice work. What about the nose cone, it looks primerless?

Thanks for posting this. I bought this kit from a vendor approximately a year ago while at a club launch, and have been eyeballing to build in last few months.

Thanks. It was originally flat black as so I’ve held off primer if it and instead filled the gouges obtained from the storage bin.
Here is where she sits now after fillets and one more coat of white primer.
