011 Superbird

I purchased this rocket from Discount Rocketry. When it came in it was missing the balsa fins. I gave a call over to Jim and Ruby the owners of Discount Rocketry and they sent a replacement kit out right away. After getting that all straighten out I began work on the body tube by filling in the spiral groove with wood filler and sanding. This rocket is the first payloader I have ever built. It splits at apogee and the boost section and the payload section come down separately. The finish came out great after several coats of primer and paint. It's a big rocket with a great design and should be a great flier.
