Building the (scratch) R13 (part 5)

Having come away from eRockets with ten 3″ long 3/16″ launch lugs, I’d say it’s time to finish (for now) work on the R13. On the upper lug I used a scrap of balsa for a standoff, just enough to clear the barrel. The bottom lug was glued into the holes (after some adjustments) in the motor mount. The stack was upside down on a rod for alignment while the glue dried.IMG_8215 You can see why I needed the long lugs. (I considered just having the holes for the launch rod but I was concerned about the rod rubbing up against the parachute.)IMG_8219That’s that for now. On to other things, but what? We shall see…
