Estes Interceptor Build #1250, Part 4, Tube Fix

The crimped tube was cut in two at the center of the bent area.
The black coupler seemed loose so a wrap of copy paper was glued over the outside to widen the O.D.

Note the pencil mark to align the tube halves and crimped area.

White glue was used. Enough glue was used so the tubes were pliable.
While the glue was drying a Sharpie was rolled over the seam and crimp to mold it flat and even. This makes for less to fill later on.
