Finishing up the 29mm Estes Big Daddy

I originally planned to fly this rocket on the Quest F12 BP motor.  Since it now appears that this motor will never exist, I decided to finish it up. This merely involved permanently affixing the plywood bulk plate in the nose cone and giving it a couple of coats of Krylon clear gloss.  It is balanced for a 'G' but I am liking the recovery phase of the sport less and less.  So, I'll probably grab some sort of single use 'F' motors.  One day, maybe it will fly on the newly announced Quest composite motors.
