  • 04/05/2022 – Looped parachute shroud lines through “D” link. Drilled two holed for 1010 rail buttons using a #31 drill bit into slotted body tube midway between fins at centering ring locations. Screwed the button into the holes, removed them, applied epoxy into holes and then re-screwed button screws into holes. This completes construction of NCR Minie Magg HPR rocket Kit #PK-68 except for paint and decals.
