Palmer Hudson sent us these photos of his rocket, Glory. The rocket was built out of phenolic tubes covered with fiberglass cloth. All construction was done using the WEST SYSTEM® epoxy and fillers.
The phenolic tube, which is a popular material for the air frame, is enhanced with a coating of epoxy to help prevent shredding that can occur at supersonic speeds (which many of these rockets are capable of exceeding). Some builders further reinforce the tube with a layer of fiberglass fabric. More advanced methods of construction incorporate carbon fiber laminate which would be lighter and stiffer than the cardboard tube, resulting in greater altitude and time aloft–to primary goals of the amateur rocketeer. Fins, typically constructed of G-10, an epoxy/fiberglass laminate, are bonded with the epoxy often with fillets that aid rigidity and prevent flutter at high speeds.
