Booster 55 Rocket Build, Part 6, Upper Body Gold Trim

The rocket needed something else at the top. I decided on a roll pattern.

I made a paper wrap and folded it into four sections. The roll pattern vertical bars will center above the fins. After a few measurements I decided on eight 1/4" wide lines.

A wrap of tape will align the tops of the trim bars.

The aluminum angle was set on the body tube and lines drawn onto the masking tape wrap.

The gold trim bar top was set against the tape edge. Looking down the body tube you can vertically align them with the fins.

After the first four bars were set the remaining four were visually set between them.
