QCC Mini
My latest downscale.

The intakes are printed on cardstock and then folded up.

Can't wait to put some 13mm Bs in it.

Wow! Charles,
After building a few of the larger kits, I would think the cardstock intakes would be much easier. Great work!

P.S. Where are you going to find the 13mm B engines? Unless you've got some stored away -

I went through about 5 versions, trying different cutout and fold ideas. Even so, they didn't turn out quite square. I forgot to compensate for the thickness of the cardstock in the forward part that rolls into a tube.

After that, it's a bunch of tiny work, trying not to stick everything including fingers together with CA. The fins are 1/32" balsa with a cardstock wrap.

Up close, the intake mounting is a little sloppy. Maybe I should have used 5min epoxy.

I bought a case of Centuri B4-3s from a collector. And then signed up with the expired motor program so I can legitimately fly them at WOOSH Bong launch days.
