T-Minus 12 Days

The rocket has changed quite a bit since our last post:

Over the past week Mr. Neil has worked tirelessly on the rocket.  First, the foam was carved down to a rough shape.

More foam was added to fill out the framework. 3

Which was carved down to a more complete shape.

4

A few layers of Bondo were added and sanded. 5

To give it the familiar candy coated look.

Friday we were back in the shop to make some progress on the homemade vacuum former. 450 evenly spaced holes were drilled into the board to ensure even suction throughout.

We’ll be back in the shop today.  Stay tuned.
