Guess I'm going to have to come up with a way to make a Mark II out of this. I stumbled upon the listing, but didn't notice the incorrect spelling, which would explain mine being the only bid. Kinda shocked to see that I won it.

I would sharpen nothing but green and brown crayons in that.
Can't wait to see the design you come up with.

Take one Baby Bertha kit. Mark it for three fins instead of four. Attach the nose on one line with an extra large drop of glue on the fillet along one side. Two ear-like fins on the other lines. Call it the Baracket and fly it on your favorite golf course...

I was watching it also but, since I've already got some I passed. I had Gordon make me a balsa plug with a shoulder for the sharpener to turn it into a nose cone.
