3-D printed Saturn V build notes, part 3

Well, it is all together but still naked:

P1350025The final weight went up as I didn't account for the epoxy in the nose, the shock tether, or the screw that holds the motor retainer/launch lug. I'm not used to worrying about 0.09 oz. It now weighs in at 4.3 oz. I actually did the arithmetic and think this is close enough for a steely-eyed missile man.

Hopefully, I can score a C6-3 and fly next week. It may or may not have any black sections at that time.
