Latest Model Rocket "How-To" Video

Building the Star Lift Mega Lander - Part 16
This week's video shows the application of the internal fin fillets that secure the fins and engine mount inside the body tube of the lander rocket. It involves creating a dam from tape on the outside of the tube, to prevent the glue from seeping out between the joint of the fins and the tube. If there are any large gaps between the fins and the edge of the tube slots, then you'll need to use a thick epoxy glue instead of wood glue. When the glue is hard, the fins will be very strong, which is what is needed for this Mega Lander model rocket.
