Goony X-15, Part 3, Small Stuff

The pointed tip of the nose cone was rounded off with some 220 grit wrapped over my fingers.

Medium CA glue was wiped onto the inside body tube ends with a Q-tip.
TIP: You can get a very even line of glue by using your fingertip against the tube lip as a depth gauge for the Q-tip applicator.
Also run some CA right onto the tube edge.

Smooth the dried CA with some 400 grit sandpaper.

The replaceable Kevlar mount line was set underneath the engine hook to help hold the taut for tying the square knot.
