Fun with Bondo

The next step toward finishing the Infinity Cycle was hiding the pits and valleys of my crap fiberglassing job with body filler. For those who have never used Bondo before, a word to the wise: It sets up really really fast, and a little goes a long way. My naive assumption was that I could spread it over the fin section all at once, and squeegee it off before it hardened. As it turns out, I barely had time to apply the Bondo at all before it solidified into a faux-stucco covering the lower half of the rocket. Sanding required an entire afternoon.

On another rocket related note, I just noticed that the Inverse Engineering guys posted my K450 static test to their website. Sweet.
