Air Munuviana update

The basic airframe is done! Today I'm working on the electronics bay which will house the altimeter and safety switch. I'm building light but strong, so the main body tube is cardboard, the nosecone is plastic, and the fins are 1/8" birch plywood. The adhesive throughout is good ol' fashioned Elmers yellow carpenter glue, which is plenty strong enough for this rocket.

She's a sleek little sweetie, there's a picture in the extended entry. That's a 3.5" diskette on the ground next to her for scale.

Yes, the fence is lovely. :-)

Cool rocket, too.

Thank you. I'd tell you that I worked hard on that fence, but all I did was write a check to guys with more time and skill than I. They caught a copperhead (poisonous snake) when they were tearing down the old fence too.

I did do the picket fence around the front yard myself. :)
