Building

I'm actually getting back on the building bandwagon. Slowly, because building Nell is incredibly hard. Turning flat balsa into a macaroni shape? Check. Assembling a rocket out of flimsy quarter-inch tubing? Working on it. Putting BENDS in that tubing, while maintaining structural integrity? It's tricky.

But I love it. I love Jim Flis's kits. They're so ridiculously cool. There's no one else who would attempt a front-motored frame-based finless scale rocket, much less kit it. And they take skill, and careful work. It's not standard work, so you really have to think. I love it.
