I've decided to try something concerning the LES. Like anyone who's flown a rocket with a tower, you're bound to break these things off. I'm going to use magnets in the capsule to hold the upper section with the LES on.

The top of the capsule is done in the same way.

When I receive more Aluminum Metalizer paint, I'll finish off the batted F-1 engines. Shoot a clear coat over them, then rub powdered graphite over them with a final coat of clear to prevent smudging.

Did you ever post a pictures of the rocket done in its entirety. was hoping to see shots of the finished build and maybe some launch shots. Thanks and what a great BUILD. You are simply amazing with the detail and precision you put into your project.

No as I'm still working on it. I'm in the process of building the display nozzle assembly. Being bipolar has it's drawbacks as well.

The engines are now attached to a 1/8" plywood "X" shape piece along with a cardboard coupler and a pair of "L" brackets.

Wow what a massive project! I can see why it is taking you so long to build and everything is so detailed. When this is all done, do you ever plan on a launch at some point or is this a display model? You are doing such a great job, very impressive!

Yes this will fly. It will fly on a single Aerotech J275W Reloadable Motor System. Computer estimates put apogee at 1600 ft. It will recover on one 8 ft. chute for the lower booster and a 5 ft. parachute for the upper section. Similar to the Estes and Centuri versions with the upper section coming down in a horizontal manner. The main reason for taking as long as it has is I simply haven't been putting all that much work time in it. It sits most of the time. Thank you.
