Nice lookingThe AnArcas is done and dusted. Final weight and CG check plugged into ORK and everything looks good to fly. The Vexillum's main coat is drying and fin details should happen this weekend (providing I don't have a reaction to the COVID vaccine I'm getting tomorrow).

Really not looking forward to sanding the tapers into my Estes Doorknob and HoJo. Any tips on doing it neatly? Is it just a matter of patience?
I'm using a sanding block so yeah, lots of patience.Really not looking forward to sanding the tapers into my Estes Doorknob and HoJo. Any tips on doing it neatly? Is it just a matter of patience?
This is what we call a Rocket Factory.Yeah! You have a nice shop. I see what you mean about the paint fumes.Marathon painting session of all the rockets I've built over the past few months. It's finally been over 50 the last couple of days. Space Shot is also visible having gotten its last round of fillets.
Six of the nine are fully colored (Sasha, Flamethrower, Duper Big Bertha, Deuces Wild, little Atlas, and 2x4), one is partially colored (Cerberus), and two just have primer (Cornered and L-13).
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go lie down and try not to barf from the paint fumes.

A nice cool different design it is. What did you use for the Rays?Since the wind died down today I was able to prime two rockets and put color on two. One of those I just finished. It's a 1950's Sci-fi inspired design. It's 44" long weighs 37 ounces with chute, has a 38mmt and uses a 3" BT. The Nose cone is a 6" styrofoam ball. And it has 4 death rays. It's scratch build number 117 and I'm calling it Regulus.
Big Daddio is looking good. A V2 is my next build. I painted my Rocketarium Skyflash.- I did the math(s) to upscale the plans I purchased from Mr. Macklin to make a guillotine fin jig.
- Blemish/touch-up work on my Big Daddy kit.
- Opened the packaging for my V2 kit and plan to assemble the motor mount and centering rings tonight.
