That'd be a nice start. I'm thinking more of bulk packs from CostCo....
It'll be great to see ya Troj....been too log. Is Deb coming?
Agreed! I'm looking forward to seeing everyone!
Deb is not coming - too hard with our youngest in school.
I really doubt it will be left out on the pad overnight to be decorated
Since I'm babysitting this thing all the way out to Kansas, it may not even be at the field overnight...
But maybe I could be bought...
It's not a question of whether or not you can be bought but for how much...
As a longtime friend of Adrian... Everyone... I'm tellin ya... He's not cheap. Easy, yes. But cheap, no...
It depends who you are...and/or how you spell your name (IE: Eric, Erik, Erick). I've always found Adrian BOTH cheap AND easy. Your mileage may vary!
Time for a little R&R! Remove & Replace...on the booster. Remove all the compromised epoxy fillets, fin skins, etc. Replace with new epoxy, carbon fiber, and filler. Fewer words, more photos!
SuperFil! A wonderful epoxy based, easily sand-able and feather-able filler...
Trim the hangover...then onto the other side!
Replace (and filler):
So Eric, how does one trim a hangover? Asking for a friend......
This may be valuable information for LDRS!
Hair of the Dog! No mimosas or clam diggers...if whiskey did the trip, go right back to the source!
Definitely! Make sure to stay plenty hydrated; both day and night when in Kloudbuster Kountry!
IF we're talking about the carbon needle hangover, well then a palm sander works well.....but then again you probably already knew that!
Hey now, I thought we were going to keep that information just between us...
What happens at the Days Inn Lounge, stays at the Days Inn lounge...
The strangest things happen when there's a Wildman around...
I know nothing about that other than it was really funny
Amensia is a terrible thing...
There must be an update for this. Next weekend we'll be painting.
Well here we are 10 years later and i am right back at it .
under 2 weeks until i leave for the launch.
I just received the upper booster back from Mr. Cayemberg and let me tell you do he does some nice solid carbon work.
today was the first real day with the whole rocket .
I got the new access hatch cut and the altimeter mounting rails glued in place .
Started the finish sanding on both boosters the O Booster should go quickly.
The minimum diameter one needs some work to be paint ready but we should be good .
Next weekend Adrian is coming over and maybe Jason with that much help we should be able to get the finish job done.
i will keep posting as thing s progress.
I just received word the Flag that Mark Rose sent from the middle east for the first flight will be back at LDRS and going for another flight in the Mega.
Progress was made today
There I am, helping Tim take a P
motor out of the box...
Busy day today we got all,of the pieces back in one spot and put together and pulled apart after a little sanding and tugging everything seams to moving appropriately.
The parts that needed primer have been primed and the others have been wet sanded to accept new paint .
We pulled the P out of its home and starting the fitment process on it while we are literally waiting for paint to dry.
A big thank you to Erik and Adrain for the help today and I think they are coming back tomorrow
I thought Eric moved into your workshop.
That thing is BadAss! Due to $ constraints, and LPR qualifications only, I will be cloning an Estes size version to fly on C6-5 BP power.
Hey Mike, I haven't moved in just yet... Rent is just too damn high! LoL
It's looking very fine! Good-luck as you continue the rebuild.
Clear coat come next
Tim I know you have a P8000 for one of the boosters. Will that be in the first stage or the second stage ? I'm interested to see how you are coupling these two beasts together .
It's going to be O motor booster to P motor sustainer.
The booster will take couplers+an extra 2 ft body tube section, then sustainer, then body tubes with couplers and av-bays.
Wow, that is looking great!!!
