The start of 2 new projects

Over the past 2 weeks ive started on my next to rockets the 1st is the V3 its a larger version of my last V2 rocket the new version will have an onboard camera larger air and water volume at 7.5L and hopefully it will be vinyl wrapped with either period test colours( black and white) or camo markings will have to hold a vote!!!!! ive decided for vinyl as paint cracks and flakes to much with the rocket expanding and contracting, To help re enforce the the bottles ive used plastic packaging banding and fiberglass parcel tape to help the rocket hold together not that 130 psi launch will stress it that much, heres some pictures of the bottles bolted together i will update on the next stage of the build.
