Gap-filled and glassed!

Fiberglassing is becoming less and less painful for me.  I sanded down the primer/paint from the original parts, filled the gaps with epoxy/silica, and applied two wraps of fiberglass.  Both the booster and payload sections went very smoothly.

Tomorrow I'll trim, mask, and prime both sections.  I should be sanding and painting by Wednesday.  I was worried that I'd started too late but this is going really well.  I also need to re-drill the vent holes and static port after painting.  Don't forget!
