Rocket repair
#2
You sure do have a problem there.
Mega M. is a BT-80, that's the coupler you'll need.
I would cut off as much of the top of the crimpled tube as you can,
put in a coupler (cutting it shorter if needed) and adding a bit of new BT-80 body tube for the nose cone to fit in.
Of coarse, you'll need to repaint.
This is all going on what you discribed without seeing pics.

I would look at www.unclemikesrocketshack.com or
www.sunward1.com for the parts.

Kirk, I looked down the pipe of my Mega M. in primer.
You would be safe to cut off 3 to 4 inches off the top.
This will allow you to put a new shock cord mount in.
You can use any card stock you have laying around.
Manilla folder from the file cabinet, even a cheap business card for the mount.
I hit the sewing center at your local Wally World and pick up 5/16" elastic, and make it at least 36".
Hit the fishing department and pick up a pack of locking snap swivels.
Put one on the chute to the nose cone, and one on the end of the shock cord to the nose cone.
I hope this helps. Hate to see any rocket go in "The for Parts Only" box.
Rather put them in the "Retired" box Smile
