I plan on buying color ink on Thursday(payday) I'll try printing/building then. Looks good so far. Will you add wings to the Nose Cone?

No, it is more of a "stepped on" football. So, the wings are built in. And I wanted to minimize the canard affect and have it shooting all over the place.

Before you get to far. My tube length is measured, but it doesn't "look" right on the rocket.

I thought you might try different lengths and see what you think.

Also, I left the detail lines running across the white "glue" part of the nacelles to help with alignment. They have to be as perfectly square as you can get them.

Since you have ink now, I'll put up what I have for a bridge.

Brian,

So far, so good.
I don't know what you plan for instructions, but may I suggest a number system, such as glue flap #1, #2, #3 ...ect. For the nacelle, I started with the front, top at the folded side and worked my way back.

It going good so far.

I noticed something about the wings, that you did not include the pointed spike tips.
Here is the download of the Buck Rogers Thunderfighter for clarity.
Page 6 (Blatt 6)

Also, if you want you could add so depth or airfoil to the wings.

On the nacelles, I did the long edge first and closed the ends. With that done, it is easier to keep the whole box square while gluing the ends. Or, easier for me...

As for the wing tips, I figured that was just one more thing to get broken or mangled, like the plastic X-Wing fighters.

That, and, anyone can use a wooden dowel to make them if they choose.

Once it gets done, what are you going to "destroy" with it ?
That's the most fun part !

I have not glued the BT to the EAD yet. No idea how long the BT should be?

Is this a little too long?

How far out the back end should it be?
I have it to the edge of the tapered bottom nacelles.
