Default BSG TOS Viper Paper Rocket

A few months back I found and built a paper Viper from this site.

http://www.geocities.jp/papertoy_box/

Another site for a Blue Viper.

Now I'm trying to convert it into a flying rocket. I enlarged it a little in order to use a BT-50 for the nose.

Now for some cardboard formers.

The motor housing is lined with cardboard from a cereal box. CR cardboard is too heavy.
I only glued the cardboard to the flat surfaces including the end pieces. If you look carefully, the end piece cardboard is glued on to the inside of the glue tabs. Then the end piece is glued on.
