Shhh, don't tell the wife that I've been Chasin' Tail

Chasin' Tail, my backsliding (supposedly) super-roc (not based on any contest definition), is basically done. I still need to insert the final, as-built mass and CG into my RockSim model and then mark the CP and LCA.

Here's a close up of the nose cone and fin can. The fin can will slide into the body up to the black tape thrust ring. All I have to to is slide it on, add a couple of wraps of masking tape at the joint, and friction fit the motor. Note to self: remove the ejection charge.

Here's why I needed a close up without the body. I'll take an outside photo tomorrow.
