why bother with clear coat, use paste wax, apply wait 15-20 minutes, bluff. :)

It's my daughter's... So we've got a magenta base color, red fins, and pink StickerShock lettering.
...
But building this little thing has me wanting my own mini. Fun freaking build.

But..but.. doesn't she like the red shiny tube? I'll have my daughter talk some sense into her.

Nope. She built it herself, so I'll paint it how she wants it. It's her first "big-girl" rocket.

This is what I imagine Adrian's house to look like:

That's fairly accurate. I've been there, several times. Adrian's rocket stash is his retirement plan, I think. LoL

Upon further investigation and a little digging, it turns out I DO have his kit.
Dragrace? In two or three years.... :facepalm:

I will neither confirm or deny this... However, my GF never comes over to my house, so I do what I want here and put crap where ever I want... I haven't seen the top of my dining room table for years... It's covered in rocket supplies :facepalm:

It's a Rustoleum 2X color. Satin finish. Says "new" on the cap. I actually really like the color. LoL. I will probably use it again. We're going to do clear coat over, it'll be nice to see it shine.

Nice job Erik.

I was on vacation last week, so I'm still catching up on emails/forums this week. :facepalm:

Looks great! What's going to be the first motor in it?

Eric looks like a pink chute would be nice. Or even neon green. What size do you need?

Needs a pink chute- those seem to be the easiest to find @ Bong.

I think it's a 15" chute. Pink is easy to see anywhere. I really don't like the color pink, personally, but I'm really impressed with Jojo's color selection. I'm just as anxious as she is to see the red fins.

Thanks and a huge shout-out to Gary from TopFlight... He gave my daughter a bright, hot pink parachute go in her Wild Thang Mini. She's super excited about the pink parachute and to fly it on September 17th at the Bong...
