Heavy and is difficult to sand down on a fin without screwing up the wood. Also, finishing resin adds no strength to the fin.

Don't use Ambroid for anything. Was the the worst glue on the planet when I was young. If they still sell it, it has to be worse.

I just hope that if they release a 'new' Gemini Titan, it's not like the rerelease last time. Release the original with two engines, not a single. That last one kinda sucked. Cheapy with that...

I don't, but I wouldn't use less than a 24 inch chute, that is if you value the fiddly bits and finnage! Maybe less likely to kink the BT.

I've been reading a lot about CTI catos. They supposedly sent out a bulletin about a fix to their distributors. After some of the stuff I've read, I don't think I'll ever use their stuff.

Once upon a time, one could get these wraps off eBay. That's where I got mine to build my Athena. Did not get the Centuri Orion use the same wraps?

I have to ask, what is the incredible attraction so many of you nice folks have for these rockets? My guess is that it must be nostalgia? They are so simple 3 or 4fnc rockets.

Really sharp, Jeff!
I have little imagination when it comes to finishing different than the 'facecard.' Very nice colors and arrangement.

That's because somebody bought one last week for over $100!
