What you'll need to build this rocket:

Adhesives – a thin or medium viscosity cyanoacrylate ("CA") glue can be used for most steps and is recommended (other adhesives, such as wood glue, [i.e., Elmer's Carpenters Glue or Titebond] or epoxy can be used if you prefer and are familiar with their use, but the use of a CA glue will provide the lightest weight model); hobby knife with a sharp #11 blade; straight edge (preferably metal); sandpaper (medium - 220 or 280, fine - 320 or 400, & [optionally] extra fine - 500 or 600); ball point pen or pencil.
Recommended, but not required: sanding block; extender tip for cyanoacrylate glue.
Optional (see instructions): accelerator for cyanoacrylate glue; sanding sealer (or balsa fillercoat); thinner (appropriate type for the sanding sealer); clear dope; dope thinner; small paint brush; paint.
