Default 1/8th scale Nike Zeus.

While the weather remains inclement, I've procured this one from Loc Precision.

This rocket uses a 'through the wall' feature where the manufacturer made pre-cut slots for the fins.

The fins have been papered to reduce filling, sanding and priming. These photos may be able to show how the fins are attached to the engine tube. This is only a dry run with no epoxy as of this time.

I've used CA to smooth out, seal and better adhere the paper to the edges.
