Default Estes Silver Streak

When Estes had there Nov sale I bought a few rockets since they were so cheap. I picked this one up for a few bucks, same as the Hobby Lobby Epic II. What can I say, build is straight forward. Kiss principles and finished in a couple of days. Used white glue, Brodak sealer, Gloss white, gloss red, gloss black and no primer. I could not tell if the red was supposed to be on half the rocket or if it was just a strip.

Since I built the Sterling Silver, I figured I might as well build the HL Epic II. I built this rocket in 2 days but used Sand N Seal since I could not use Brodak inside my garage. Sand N Seal works pretty good as long as you scrape off the excess after brushing on.
