I've been building rockets for about two months now. Unfortunately, I did not document my first build - Estes' Der Red Max.
I hadn't realized how obsessed I'd get with building rockets. But with my second build, I started photographing most of what I was doing. Here's my second build - Estes' Crossfire ISX. Notice I did a different paint job than the standard - to differentiate from Chad's Crossfire.
Here, you'll see my first mistakes - which I learned from, and happily did not repeat on my second build.
Enjoy the obsessiveness!
