Build History

  • 01/30/1999 – Purchased Custom Venture #10019 from Joe’s Hobby Barn for $6.02 (Retail – $6.69)
  • 03/11/2000 – Opened kit and found all parts present. Removed parts from bag and scanned decal, fin guide, nose cone, and fin. Removed parts to construct engine mount. Marked engine mount at 2-1/2″, 2″, 3/4″. Cut small site to accommodate the upper end of the engine retainer on the 2-1/2″ mark. Installed the engine retainer to engine mount tube. Ran a small bead of glue just ahead of the 3/4″ mark and pushed centering ring through the glue bead. Ran a bead of glue just above the 2′ mark and pushed the other centering ring through the glue to the 2″ mark. Filleted the centering ring joints. Glued the assembly flush with the body tube. Attached balsa fins to body tube and filleted the joints. Secured screw eye into white plastic nose cone.
