I am building a Launch Pad kit called the HARM. It has a paper tail cone that the instructions say to paint with CA. Is there anything better to coat it with to strengthen it before gluing the fins on? Has anyone in the group run into this before? ...

Thin CA is good, wood hardener can be used in this context, or a laminating epoxy.

I’ve had good luck with the thin CA.

I built the transition section of my last high-power build with a manila folder that I did exactly this with. CA worked great and was very light. Laminating epoxy would be fine, too, but would be a lot heavier. If you search around, Apogee Components did some tips on building this sort of thing. I found that this method worked the best: 1. Cut cone. 2. Form cone over a sharp corner 3. Cut a strip of the same card you cut the cone out of. Glue it to the inside of one edge with rubber cement. 4. Paint the exposed bit of the strip and the inside of the free edge with rubber cement. Let it set up, then adhere them.

CA. Just hold your nose because that stuff stinks. 😷
