Aerotech Wart-Hog

This is the sixth Aerotech rocket I built. It has four fins and some extra pieces that go on the body tube to make it look like a missle. It comes in a box, and has molded plastic fins with through-the-wall (and to the motor mount) fin mounting. There were no factory problems with the kit. I used CA throughout as per the instructions. Nothing wrong with this kit, but it is my least favorite Aerotech rocket - mainly a style issue.
