Default A Few Of The New BARCLONE Designs

Since the forum allows image attachments, I thought I'd share a few new designs with everyone while the plans are being put in place...

From left to right, we have:

1. Ascender (ST-7, 18mm)

2. Blue Sneek (ST-10, 18mm)

3. Gryphon (ST-7, 18mm)

4. Hawk (2-stage, ST-7 to ST-8, 18mm standard, 13mm if we ever get boosters)

5. Stryker (ST-10, 18mm)


More to come...

Cool designs. When do we get to see the plans?

The plans should be popping up on the website "real soon now"; the last of this series was sent up to our "Fearless Leader" just before NARAM.

Craig.

Hehe. I like using the RSN as well. Yes, I have lots of stuff to add to the various sites. Unfortunately, all I've been able to find has been square tuits as of late. There hasn't been a round tuit in sight for awhile now. I will attempt to start popping some of Craig's many BARCLONE plans up this weekend.

BTW, the BARCLONE site is open to EVERYONE's original plans. So if you've designed a cool looking kit, send the info over to have it featured there along with Craig's designs.

Cool designs, Craig! I was recently messing around with a "stretch" version of the Estes Missile Command "Navy" bird, and came up with vaguely similar design (even ST-10 and 18mm!) to your "Blue Sneek."

Great minds think alike, apparently.

Cheers,

Thanks!

I've got two more versions of this design floating around in my head, both "stretch" models with a 4" payload section, one with a booster for two-stage operation.

This first version is already built, just needing the final paint job and some decals.

Scott is also going to post a RKT file of an "up-scaled" version, using SEMROC's BT-175 and BC-175 components, and with a 29mm mount. It still needs some attention to final details, but I think someone could build a nice version from it.

Craig.

Here's another version of the picture. This one's exported from the demo version of RockSim 8 (which means the image resolution is much higher).

I've heard that before. What do you think explains you and Craig?

Looks really good, Jay. Try 'up-sizing' to SEMROC's 175 series, and you'll see some incredible simulation flights on 29mm. Why not work something up and post it to BARCLONE?

My "inspiration" for the Blue Sneek was a combination of Estes 'Sea Strike D' and Quest 'Navaho AGM' kits. I think I had also seen the 'Navy Bird' and it may have played a part in the fin shape. I didn't want an 'exact' copy of any of these, but something with a 'family' feel.

What I really liked about the final design, especially once I could hold it in my hands, was the overall proportions. The ST-10 body tube is a really good choice for this model. It is not quite as anorexic as it would have been using either BT-50 or ST-8, and it isn't as overweight as it would have been using either BT-55 or ST-13. It winds up being about the same size overall as SEMROC's version of the Astro-1 and the Astrobee-350.

At least, that explains me. For Craig, apparently it's just sheer coincidence.
