I started this one a week or so ago in between stopping points on the Boeing A.L.C.M. restoration that I am working on for someone.

I chose to 'break' it in the middle so it is easier to transport and store and also papered the fins. I haven't decided on what the color scheme will be yet, so until I figure that out...

Nice. I built the same way, flew it on a CTI E and lost it on the first flight :(

I have the Custom Rockets Equinox which is pretty much the same thing. Breaking it in the middle makes life so much easier. Flies very nice - used for an 8th grade math/science demo rocket last spring.

Looks really nice! What specifically did you use to paper the fins?

Thank you, sir. I used #20 bond paper and wood glue. Thin layer applied with my finger and then squeegee with a credit card after the paper is applied.

I like that color scheme, those red stripes are a very nice effect!

Thanks! I used 3 different widths of painters tape and the fourth, smallest, I cut.
