Stage 1: We have purchased a 2mm thick 420mm x 400mm mild-steel sheet this is the base component of our new launcher. We have already marked out and drilled most of the holes needed to mount some of the components. The rest of the holes needed will be added after we have purchased the rest of the components needed. The launch stanchion and temporary legs have been attached. All parts will be dismantled after test assembly as the mild steel base is to be painted to protect it against rusting.
