Build History

  • 2/21/2020 – Took pictures of package. and components. Scanned components. Made copy of pafe 2 and cut out the tube marking guide and the shock cord mount. Measured the engine mount at 1/2′ & 2″ from t he aft end of motor tube. Marked body tube using fine launch lug guide at the locations for each item.
  • 2/22/2020 – Glued motor mount assembly into body tube assuring the ends of the motor mount assembly and the body tube are even. Sanded fin sheet using 220 grit sandpaper. Removed fins from balsa sheet and sanded edges, being sure to round the leading edge and then glued each fin to the body tube along each fin guide line on the body tube. Cut the launch lug in half and glued one half even with the aft end and the other half 12″ from the aft end. Glued body tube connector to lower body tube. Glued shock cord to mount and then at least 2″ inside of upper body tube. Tied other end of shock cord to nose cone. Filleted all fin/body tube joints and all launch lug/body tube joints. Epoxied Engine Retainer onto motor mount tube with Harbor Freight’s 2 part Super Epoxy. This completes construction of Estes Vapor #7294 model rocket except for paint and decal.
