I made some real progress tonight, it's starting to come together. I'm basically following the Estes plans. I epoxied all 6 fins on. I took my time I did them one at a time to make sure they went on straight, which was easy, as Leo did an excellent job on getting the curvature to match the body tube. I made sure to work the epoxy into the holes I drilled and I roughed up the back of the fin pads with sandpaper to further help with adhesion. I also tried to keep the amount of epoxy I used low making sure to get a nice even thin coat that wouldn't ooze out.

Use tape to hold the cable covers in place while the glue dries.

I finished it tonight. I used vinyl stickers from Stickershock. Of course after I got all the stickers on I realized I forgot to paint the top of the nose white. Doh! But that's okay. I might spray is with some dull coat to make the decals not so shiny, or a may just leave it alone. Turned out just fine the way it is as far as I'm concerned
