Semroc SPEV Build Part 2, Sub Assemblies

The engine mount went together as normal, nothing out of the ordinary here.
The Semroc centering rings are thicker than the old Estes rings.

The red and white parachute will look good on this Saturn-ish looking model.

I always add a snap swivel on builds.
Right now there are no tangles in the shroud lines.
Some of the adapter shoulders were tight in their adjoining tubes.

Careful sanding with 220 grit on a block got them to a better slip fit.

Don't ever force a nose cone or adapter shoulder into a body tube.
BT-20 and BT-50 tubes can crimp!
If it feels tight, stop and sand the shoulder.
