It's done, and I thank you, but you really don't need to, and I can't reciprocate, being broke right now.

Thanks for the info.

As to your presumption, that seems to be the going idea. However, I'm unable to confirm that.

Dreaming of making the rockets I dreamed of as a kid (and then some).

"The Guide says there is an art to flying", said Ford, "or rather a knack."
"The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss."

Launching is Optional... Landing? That Depends on Trees.

As I remember it (been a LONG time), the Akela was the same as the Viking. The difference was that the Akela was available through Scouting dealers and came both singly and in 12 packs. The Akela, of course, had a different decal sheet, but was otherwise the same.

Hint #1: Do not use magician's flash paper for recovery wadding!

Hint #2: Clean your shoes after flyin' in that cow pasture - that ain't no dirt clod on the sole!
