F-16 Canopy!

Work continues on the new F-16 Fighter Fleet kit.
A big hurdle was making a workable clear canopy. I didn't want to go the easy route and include one made of card stock. What really set off the Centuri kit was the clear canopy with the decal details underneath.
After many revisions and test flights the real work starts on the instructions.

Sirius Rocketry Order

Here's just a small part of a big kit order from Sirius Rocketry.
All the couplers and tubes in the re-designed Odd'l Break-Away kit are hand cut.
These are longer than the available 1" couplers. At 1 1/4" long the segmented rocket stands straighter on the launcher.

This is only 11 sets from the 25 kit run I put together.
That's a whole afternoon of measuring, sanding and cutting.
I wore out a few razor blades in the process.
