I have never built a rocket that transitions between two tube sizes and would like to try it. Does anybody have any links to information with pictures on how to easily built such a transition? I would prefer to build rather than buy as I am mainly a scratch builder. My first attempt will probably be bt-60 to bt-50.
My vote is for VCP

It calculates rocket stability, prints fin alignment templates, tube wraps, shrouds, and more. Best of all it is free.

The only problem so far is that it isn't offered for Mac's.
Hey Gary Crowell, Mac users love your program too!
110 lb cardstock works great too, plus it fits in your printer. I found some at my local Wal-Mart (which is a in-the-middle-of-nowhere Wal-Mart if that means anything).

I use this program that works as a macro in Microsoft PowerePoint. It may take some tinkering to get the macro to turn on, but after that it's smooth sailing.
