    Oct 10, 2008, 3:40 PM - Starting my WOF rocket pack. #1

    Guys,

    Im about to start my scratch built rocket pack using WOF templates(amazing guy and amazing work!).

    Id just like to ask if i need to get hold of some pipe for the large tubular sections(boosters and missile).

    Is there any other advice anyone can give? should i do some extra work to make it a little stronger perhaps?

    Thanks

    Lee

    If you can get the correct sized diameter pipe, then go for it! You could also get the closest size to it and form your sintra (if thats what you are using) over it, would work best for the central section.

    I found super glueing it together and then using a hot glue gun in what I can best describe as a weld technique worked very well for me. I had a buld thread somewhere, will try and bump it, also check out Jango72's he made a great pack also.

    What material are you using?
