I will remove the thicker rails while maintaining the stand off supports. Metal rods of the appropriate diameter will be substituted instead.

The SM has the most detail and nomenclature of the entire rocket. I believe I can make this work. Thank you.

I've decided to remove several panels as I'm not thrilled in regards to how they turned out. I've ordered more and will wait. I will do better.

After about four failed attempts tin using the Bare Metal product, I decided to simply paint the SM. The Bare metal is a great tool yet I haven't been able to get it over some of the pronounced details without tearing or wrinkling. I've been using a paper burnisher which is helpful yet the learning curve for me is an elongated one. I may use the material on the fin shrouds and fins. I'll see.
