- I started cutting and installing the fin mounting guides to the rear thrust plate. Glue is setting on two, 14 more to go.
- Marked the remaining foam rings. One is cut, six more to go.
- Scavenged the rail mounting blocks from the carcass of the Grand Whazoo. Added some washers as spacers. Glue is drying on the aft block.
- Cut an arc of the 1/2" foam board into little chunks. These will help support the inter-fin 'skin' sections where they touch the rear plate.
Did I mention this is going to resemble a Mercury Redstone about as much as the Grand Whazoo resembled a V2? It should be recognizable but keep your rulers in your range box!
