I'm glad to see it got of the ground, looks great. One question - what did you use to make the "riveted panels"?

Lovely rocket. Very artistic. Mind if I use 1 or 2 pics of your rocket for a presentation?

Hi Lorstin,

The riveted panels are sheets of styrene. Same as this stuff https://evergreenscalemodels.com/collections/plain-opaque-white-polystrene-sheets

I cut them to size rounded the corners and then used a metal punch and hammer to make dents in the back for the rivets.
