Body Tubes

Body Tubes

Body tubes provide the structure of the airframe of a model rocket, and Rocketry Works carries a variety of sizes to suit many models. Cardboard construction keeps these tubes light and strong, suitable for many successful flights. You can color Rocketry Works' kraft paper tubes can not just with spray paint, but most brush on paints, decals, or even markers. Tubes with a glassine finish have a waxy coating that accepts spray and brush on paint, and are intended to be painted due to their brown color.
