Same here. Very pleased! I dont expect the adhesive of the foil panels to still be viable, so I?ll use ?devils mucous? if necessary.

You did a good job documenting the previous build:

https://www.oldrocketforum.com/showthread.php?t=10142

This is a difficult kit to document for cloning. Jimz has a good scan of the wrap, but not enough information about the sizes of the protrusions to duplicate it.

If you can, please take many pictures and measurements of the vacuformed parts.

A local makerspace has a fairly large vacuform machine, so it is "just" having to make a mold...
