Default Mercury Redstone Wrap

I ordered a Gemini Titan wrap from accur8, and was a little surprised when I received a Mercury Redstone wrap instead. John Pursley did me right, and has the correct one on the way, but told me to keep the Mercury. I had bought fins from him in Late Oct 2017, to build my old Estes redstone 1921, but I never got to it. His wraps gave me the inspiration to build it. The Wraps make it look good. Thanks John!

Just finished a Boyce Aerospace BT-80 Gemini Titan and Mercury Redstone.
I have the wraps put on the Gemini and they look great.
The Mercury will take some cutting to do as the lower wrap is designed to be put on befor fins are attached and this kit uses a fin can. So I have to attempt to cut the wrap into small pieces to put on the fins and on the tube between them. If it looks badly will just paint the fin roll pattern on and use the rest of the wraps normal.
