Default Vintage Estes Cougar and other builds

Since all my rockets are still packed, I am building new rockets so I can launch in my back yard. I will unpack my rockets once my hobby room is complete. I bought 2 lacquer sanding sealers for some wood working and decided to try them on my rockets. I first used scrap wood and the Minwax Lacquer sanding sealer performed much better than the Deft. I was brushing in 72 degrees and low humidity but the Deft took forever to dry. Minwax is sandable in under 1 hour. Neither compare to Aerogloss sealer but Minwax is a thinner version of old Brodak sanding sealer and is Nitrocellulose based. Minwax takes 4 coats to seal and fill the grain. I think Deft is more of an oil based sealer. Any way, the Cougar is build out of the bag in 1 day but had to wait a week for painting. During that time I build the Alpha and another Tazz. I am going to try and launch these rockets tonight once the wind dies down.
