Default Saucer question

I have become interested in saucers of late. I know there was the paper one and the Snitch from Estes, the Area 51 and Planet Probe from Quest and the Frick Frack from Fliskits. Were there or are there still any others out there ? Thanks in advance, Les

Estes had a clone of the Centuri one once they shut the Centuri division down too.

FlisKits has several others including the three-stage Trifecta (gotta build mine).

The ones I see most often at launches are Applewhite saucers/pyramids.

There is also the square flat plate with a motor tube - the New Way Spacemodels Dare 2 B Square. That's a saucer of sorts.....

I'm sure Mr Applewhite will be flattered...and amused...to read that

Default Apologies to Art

It's Applewhite, not Applegate, my sincere apologies. First my eyesight stated to go, then my hair and now my short term memory. Getting older sucks but it's better than the other option.

Dont forget about http://www.rocketarium.com/ Some of the most unusual and innovative saucer / odd roc type designs I have seen. Worth a look. And if you buy something be sure to mention my name. I keep hoping he will pay me for liking his stuff so much...

Default Hey, Harsas

I took your advice and checked out Rocketarium. Lots of neat birds but the one that impressed me the most was the Retro Rebel. Now that is what I call different ! I did mention your name when I placed my order. Hope it gets you a discount on your next order,
He has very resonable shipping,

Les
