Fett Boy photos

If you click through to my Flickr album, there are a few more shots. It is ready to fly as is and I may or may not try to decorate it more. With the nose section off, you can see that I applied a few wraps of tape to snug up the nose. It is heavy enough that I may need some extra masking tape at flight time. I am also wondering if I should have the two parts come down separately. Those are prep details as the rocket can go either way. In the shot of the nose weight, you see that I have an emergency 'chute in the event that the heavy cap pops off. It seems tight enough to me, but I want to be extra careful.
