Centaurus, pt 5

The Centaurus is coming along well. In this photo, the bottom section is done and the upper section has fins and is primed.  I have also fashioned the struts and the pegs that will fit in the pod.  It was easy to work out a pattern with a sheet of paper and a ruler. The orange strip along the upper fins is painted and is drying. Once dry, the upper and lower parts will be merged. The next post will hopefully show the whole thing in its final form. I have yet to decide on how to more firmly attach the pods and will have to iterate the design to determine what nose weight is required.
