  • 06/27/2002 – Measured the fins, nose cone and body tube. Traced the fin and nose cone on page 154 Book #1. Cemented the launch lugs into the body tube square holes. Cemented the three black fins into the body tube. Cemented dhock cord mount to body tube. Tied a double knot in one end of shock cord. Removed tube coupler from yellow nose cone and cut out excess flange material from eyelette. Applied self adhesive decals. This completes construction of Estes
  • 06/28/2002 – The Twister is the other rocket included in this kit. Took pictures and scanned plans, decal, fin, and nose cone. Made a copy of body tube pattern sheet and cut it out. Glued nose cone to longer body tube. Marked long tube using guide A and short tube with guide B. Sanded balsa edges along root edge. Glued launch lug and fins to body tube. Marked the yellow tube 1-1/4″ from end and glued green engine block in place so it is 1-1/4″ from the end of body tube. This completes construction of this model.
