Estes Starship Nova #1371 Build, Part 7, Low Intake Tube Rings
The rings are glued on the ends of the tubes, lining up with the pencil lines.
On the right I'm adding a small inside glue fillet with a Q-tip.
After the glue dries the burnt edges were cleaned up with some 400 grit wrapped around a pen barrel.
You can see the inside edge is lighter with the burnt edge sanded off off.
I did try to paint the inside of the tube black before gluing on the ring ends. I found out it's easier to blacken the inside after the long piece is cut out as shown in the next post.
