Too Rolling (Red)Stoned - progress report

This photo show the entire lower section as it stands (no pun intended). The last glue is drying as I type. A tad of touch up and I can start applying the skins. It's good the fins are replaceable - I already dinged one. If there was any hope they wouldn't suffer damage on landing, I'd cut a new one now. But, unreinforced foam board WILL be damaged on this big a rocket.  This thing is going to be BIG.  I may yet regret not building it for a 38mm motor.

And, here's a close-up of the fin area.
