New Build - Estes Mini Honest John

I made a couple exciting discoveries tonight, but I need to take pictures before I write about it.

In the meantime, here's an album of a build I did. This was my third build, the Estes Mini Honest John, a scale model of the first missile to carry a nuclear payload in the U.S. arsenal. I'm not terribly interested in military scale models, but this looked cute in the package (it was so tiny!), and it was cheap, and I needed a cheap rocket to practice a few techniques I was just learning.

You'll see where I made a couple mistakes, and how I corrected them. I finished building this rocket some time last month.
