Under Construction:

The motor mount and fins slid into the body tube and were held in place with 12 - #10 screws

The forward plate is a bulkhead not a centering ring. This allowed for the largest motor

anticipated to bear its load on this plate rather than on the aft centering ring.

The fins are 1/4" Balsa Plywood laid up and vacuumed with two layers of 6oz. Kevlar.

The body tube is PML phenolic with two layers of 9oz. Carbon vacuumed.
