The fillets are sanded down and a coat of light primer put over them.

They look good enough from 3 feet away, so I'll finish priming and then paint.

Probably have to wait for this weekend or the next one, since it is too cold to paint in the garage right now.

Time to start thinking about what colors to paint it.

Finally getting down to the end.

Need to put on the rail buttons and ground test.

Calculated the main charge to be 3.5 grams, ground testing proved that at least 5 grams is needed.

The apogee charge should be a lot less, since the drogue is lose fitting versus the tight Skyangle chute for the main.
