Actually glued two popsicle sticks together to make a QWIK-Whack Jig for drawing the Bevel Lines.

Taking a breather, just shy of the 2/3s mark.

Just working up three, foamy. And, I hope it's not a Fireable Offense that I've masked to locate the Lug/Tunnel centered between fins.

They look great!—but I’m not quite sure how you employed the jig. Please elaborate.

Bevel Jig Elaboration.

See it now, JJ? I just made this up for this model, and it really made marking and remarking the bevel lines a breeze. I did a little whittling with X-acto, but mostly I removed the material with a 1" wide Sally Hansen medium-grit emery board. I don't think I got one wavy edge.

So, the “jig” is strictly a measuring device...

I like what the letters WAC mean in the name of this rocket.
WITHOUT ANY CONTROL.
Has a certain flavor of MAYHEM to it.
