Estes Apollo Little Joe II Build, Part 19, Escape Tower Nozzles
The (Centuri) escape tower nozzle halves don't have alignment pins. After glue was applied to the inside, glue was sparingly brushed on the outside. This liquid glue dries clean and doesn't distort the plastic. Go light.
The outside joint is a bit rough. The flash is scraped and the sides sanded smooth.
I had to sand the sides of the assemblies so they would slide together.
The inset shows the nozzle ends sanded flat and even.
Here's the two nozzle halves joined.
Don't worry about the top, it'll be covered by the tower cap.
