The BIG Fix, Estes Honest John, Part 2
A short segment of BT-50H was cut into quarters. The sides were trimmed more to allow space to fit between the sides of the TTW fin tabs.
These were glued around the new extension piece with equal spacing between the pieces.
Look close at the bottom left and you can see the lower open space around the fin tab.
A D engine was slid in to make sure the tube ends were aligned.
Remove the engine before the glue starts to set.
The middle ring of the retainer was glued over the end with epoxy.
Perfect? No. Launchable? - YES!
