Just trashed my American flag painted, kit bashed Mean Machine. I used a Vinyl coated nylon chute and it hung up in the body tube andnosed in. Got four flights out of it on F21-6's. I kick myself for using a different chute and thought I used enough talcum and packed carefully. I wonder if anyone makes a slightly thicker BT-60 body tube so I could reprise the model? I glassed the tubes with resin and it was a royal pain. Rick Boyette "Rocket Rik" sent me the instructions on how to "quasi-glass" tubes. Indeed it is easier than fiberglassing but if someone knows of a source of thicker BT-60 type tubes that would be the easy way out to get a bit more strength and I could concentrate more on painting rather than sanding and re-applying resin. The model looked so cool going up and the F21-6 econojet really sent an echo out over the farmland.
