Lee,

Check out Louie Berlinís MDBRM that he built. Louie also has a video on his YouTube channel (Lou Smith) launching on a Cesaroni skidmark motor.

Off-Topic Comrades:

Finally got a chance to work on it and made good progress. I reenforced the upper ring with some tubing I had that slip fit over the 29mm motor tube. I think it was LT-125 from Semroc. There's a 1.5" piece, then the ring, then a .5" piece so the ring is "trapped" between them. The Kevlar is a weave and I've run it down the motor mount in anticipation of gluing on the main body. The knot is coated with epoxy.

The next steps are to glue on the main body tube, add the fin skins and motor retainer and then we paint. I'm hoping to fly on 4th of July weekend.

Well, I didn't get done by 4th of July or even July 20th. Two quick pictures, the first is of the completed rocket before painting and the second, with primer, out under the blazing Texas sun this afternoon. Primers are Dupli-color Grey Filler and Dupli-color White.

Not entirely sure what colors I'm going to paint it. I don't particularly want to do it with the Alpha decals that have been around since 1982 as my original rocket flying days were before that. I note that the JimZ plans indicate the original prototype was white with red nose, one red fin and an adjacent panel red.

Maybe.

One of the old Estes decals would provide a nice dash of anti-color.

Comrades:

Here it is out-gassing on a painting stick under this afternoon's blazing Texas sunshine. Paint is Rustoleum Gloss White and Sunrise Red. Scheme is for the Alpha prototype from the K-25 instruction sheet on Jim Z's site. I like Bill's suggestion about an old Estes decal, I'll have to see what's in the decal box.

No idea when I'll be able to launch. We did get some rain so the burn ban is lifted but my recovery crew is going back to school tomorrow.

If your decal box is short of them, let me know and I'll see what I can wang up with the inkjet.
