Ok guys, 

 
here is my attempt on that cap plug rockets, that TR  gets out so perfectly.
 
 
You see the point in the ring, where I have tissue paper stuffed between the cap plugs. (I had a small gap between them) with the timing I am quite satisfied, considering that I have all cut by hand :)

First and second ring were very close.  Was that intentional? 

 

Great rocket VP.

Looked like you had a weak spot in the casing, 1 of the caps, in both of the rings, was thrown further then the rest.

Other then that, real pretty, and the timing was spot on.

Great job on the rings, next time use a bit of silicone oil on the last cap plug (where you put the tissue) and squeeze it in the gap.  It WILL fit!  TR will tell you the same thing, if you use a filler you will get a hole.

What Ti mesh did you use? I guess it's sponge ?
