Leaps and bounds

All of a sudden this thing's really coming together. I cut all the airframe holes tonight and everything's piecing together peachily:

Despite all my Illustrator pre-work and all the iteration I still managed to aim the camera basically down a fin. It's a 16:9 aspect ratio camera and it's focus is fixed below the fin but still. Duh. The final motor tube/e-bay assembly's curing now. Tomorrow night I'll reinforce the fins and epoxy the entire booster together when that's done. I really need to complete the construction soon because I want this to be super glossy when painted and I have all those awesome Sticker Shock decals to apply before LDRS...
