here we have two views of the motor mount for this rocket. I have added a thrust ring to the top of it, both as a motor stop and as a anchor for the shock cord mount.

And here is the motor mount glued into the bottom fin can. I used the generous portion of plastic model cement to hold this together.

Let's just tuck that Kevlar shock cord down through the motor mount for the next step.

Glue the fin can to the main body tube. Take care to align the body tube with the fin can so that the label is centered between two fins.

Launch lug & Fin assembly (2016-03-13 01:04:42)


First mark the body tube @ 3¾ inch up from the bottom of the fin can, then a second mark at 7⅜ up. Scuff the body tube between the marks, then glue the lug on. I chose to use the seam where the body wrap seam is.


And here we show the actual fins being installed. They get glued on with some Testors brand plastic model cement in an orange tube.

Stickers and parachute (2016-04-11 23:14:12)

 Here  is a quick picture of the stickers attached to the fins.

A picture of the assembled parachute.


And of the completed rocket.

And that's it. She is done. An attached RocSim file is at the end of the build. It more correctly reflects the actual weight's of all the kit pieces that I measured before assembly. The final weight was about double what the original sim file stated.
