- The fin can is intact and will be reused. I managed to beat out the stuck motor. Paper labels suck. Once I got it out, I inserted a RMS case to make sure the mount stated round while it dried. I reinforced the out-of-round decorative tubes with piece of Semroc dummy 18mm motors and dowels.
- Another 3" mailing tube ~40" long. With the fins on the motor mount, I'll have to slot the tube to the end.
- I'm changing the nose to give it a new look. I have a stubby 3" cone that I made with a found plastic doohickey. I guess you'd call it a truncated oval. I'm going to drill the tip out for a piece of 29mm tube and add a conical PML resin cone. This should give it a sorta ram-jet look. I may add a payload section to lengthen the rocket but will wait to see what it looks like with the short nose. This may also be needed for stability.
