The best adhesive I use for the fin can is Goop brand multi-purpose adhesive. It's very strong, but it still removable if needed.

Greetings

Am I doing something wrong ? I wanted to open the file in Rocksim and when I clicked on it it opened another window with just text in it ? I thought I could download the file then open it with Rocksim ?

Note: There was an error in the transition section of my original post; a new RockSim file where the transition is now marked as hollow instead of filled polystyrene is included for the 1320.

After downloading the file place it into the following location: C:\Program Files (x86)\RockSim 9\Designs\

Then open RockSim software and under Open in the File menu you should be able to locate the file and it should then open with RockSim.

What version of RockSim do you have? I am using RockSim 9 which is not backward compatible with earlier versions.

Bruce thanks for the details on the download, I am running ROCSIM 9 and could not remember the correct way to save files. I got it and was able to open it.

Did these models ever appear in a catalog ? I just looked at the Centuri and Enerjet catalogs from 72 and didn't see it ?

Was this color scheme your original or was this printed somewhere ?

TIA

This makes it much easier to re-use the can should the rocket come to an untimely end.

Look at post #47. You'll see the stock paint scheme.

The Enerjet 1340, 2250, and 2650 were never in any catalog I'm aware of, neither was their G motor.
They had "press release" sheets.

Bruce,

Both look great! It looks like you printed your own decals. Would you mind posting the file? Or maybe the location if itís available?

Iíve got an Eliminator I want to build, but Iíve been putting off until I could get a decal, or image for it.

Thanks,
