Thats a neat, cute way to get a mile high.
Are those Estes BT's, NC? Glassed? Single deploy, right?

Yeah....... :-) I got laughed at......they're the only original parts left! Oh.....And the decals / stickers...

A single layer of glass for the BT's. First time I tried out Vac Bagging... Mixed results...........
I also glassed inside the exposed couplers for the Fin Can & NC. They felt a little squashy / weak & also something for the screws to bite into.
Single deploy.... (Streamer for high flights) I should have used a 24mm tube instead of 18mm in the nose. I could have set up the MAWD & give DDeploy a go....... :-(

Ok....some more pics for you to look at.
Not painted yet......but the building is complete. You can see the rail guides, vent holes etc....
I'm pretty happy with the way it has turned out so far. We'll see about that after I paint.
