Estes Puma (7256)

By Steve Lindeman

Estes - Puma (7256)

This is the third of the Estes 13mm powered rockets that I will build. Unlike the last two builds this one should be a little easier as I don't have to cut tubes. Production date stamp is 12/03/15.

Motor Mount (2020-01-15 23:24:36)

Once again this kit starts with the motor mount and again if you're all thumbs as I tend to be at times, a pair of tweezers will help with this section of the build as there are 8 tiny parts that need to be glued on the end of the motor mount. On a side note here: Check the green centering ring that you split before gluing it on to ensure proper length for wood pieces. After gluing the white marking ring on all eight pieces of wood were glued on. (I left a small gap that I needed to fill with puttyYell).

Wing Pod Prep (2020-01-15 23:56:35)

After cutting out all parts (G-J) I dry fit them all together to see how hard they were going to be to paint and decided to color them first before assembly.
