Rail guides




The rail guides have been installed using JB weld. The rocket was held stable using the highly technical "pile of jackets" method. Some of the extra epoxy was used to repair a Stegosaur tail spike fossil. I always mix way more than needed, because it seems that very small amounts tend to mix poorly. JB weld is proving to be a very useful epoxy, having never really found a place in my rockets to date.

Do you collect fossils? It's a recently acquired hobby for me.

I launch everything above a 'D' on rails. Our club maintains mid power launch rails in addition to high power.

Yes I have a small natural history collection including fossils. Mostly I go get my own fossils, it is more fun that way!
