Am modifying an Executioner to a "Hexecutioner". Yeah my 11y/o son is into Harry Potter and said I'm putting a "hex" on the model.I am going to use this as a level one certifying model with an H 220. Before you say I'm nuts, the only thing I am using from the kit is the nosecone and fins. I bought an heavy duty BT-80 and 29mm engine tube from BMS. I also had them cut 6 plywood centering rings for the engine tube. So I am not being a wuss here. :) I built up the base of the nosecone with body putty to compensate for the increased thickness of the body tube and make it more aerodynamic. My only problem is I am not trusting of the little plastic connection for the shock cord and parachute. I was thinking of making a plug I could epoxy to the center hole with Devcon plastic epoxy or J & B weld. Anyone have any suggestions for putting a more secure scew eye on a plastic nose cone for added insurance for the higher forces the ship may be subjected to? Thanks.
