I remember getting this rocket from a Christmas Wishbook catalog in the 80s for Christmas and it was a fun build. Back then I was not very good at building but she still flew great. I just bought this kit off Ebay and had to build it. It was an easy build using Elmers Glue All. Since I did not us primer I had to brush on 4 coats of balsa sealer for a smooth grain free build. I am using Krylon industrial paint, two lite coats followed by one wet coat. I do not have purple paint so I ordered a case of old Krylon purple industrial paint. I still cannot believe how lite these non primer builds are, should be good flyers. You can see the balsa is nice and smooth and yes I can live with the spirals as long as the rest of the build is clean.
