Build History

  • 02/28/2005 – Purchased Estes Lucky Seven form Hobby Lobby in Columbus, IN for $5.89 (Retail $6.99)
  • 10/06/2005 – Took picture of package, opened package and took pictures of parts. Scanned parts, decal picture card, and plans. Measured parted and recorded them on page 152 Book #2. Placed top of engine holder against the end of the motor mount tube. Placed the two inside the body with the holder inside the holder slot. Slid 4 fins into body tube slots so the fins were even with the end of body. Glued four thruster into base plate holes. Glued base plate onto end of body over engine mount tube. Glued nose cone cap into one half of nose cone. Split nose weight in half and applied to each nose half. Glued nose halves together after attaching shock core to nose cone. Tied a double knot in the other end of shock cord after passing it through the hole in the body floor. Applied self adhesive decals to model using picture and plans as a guide. Will save parachute for use later. Took pictures of completed model. This completes construction of Estes Lucky Seven model rocket #0807.
