#21 Mars Snooper

Post by Commander » Tue, 27 Dec 16, 03:19 am

I've been working on this Snooper for awhile now. Seems like every time I get close to doing the painting, something else snaps off. I gave the whole rocket a final primer coat Christmas Eve and was doing a finishing sanding getting ready for the color coats when pop, I felt one of the fins give. Of the nine fin joints on the lower part, I think I have reglued six of them. As can be seen in the pictures below, the glue joint is strong, as the tube is ripping. I am not handling the rocket roughly, but something in the joint is weak.
