Carded Red Max Build, Part 8, Glued Assembly
The black fin position lines were lightly scraped for better glue adhesion.
At the paper seam joint on the launch lug, the seam was sanded.
The fin lines were also scraped and the fins glued on.
On a printed, carded rocket it's important to use white glue on the outside surfaces. Wood glue would dry yellow and discolor the print and model. White glue dries clear and is invisible on the finished model.
There is no room for a streamer, this model used a simple nose blow recovery.
The nose cone was 2/3 full of clay weight.
The Kevlar line was tied to the nose cone base with a secure square knot.
