Interestingly the MPC line was a General Mills product line! Mass market effort extreme.

Default what happened to Amrocs?

The Omega is indeed a three stage rocket. The boosters were sold separately. One paid something like $2.00 for the sustainer, and the boosters were $0.50 a piece. That is a detail I had forgotten until I looked at the catalog recently. I have a copy of the catalog page, somewhere, I just can't locate it at the moment.

I've been on the ninfinger site lots of times to browse catalogs, but never noticed the AmRocs catalog.

The Omega is a neat design. I can understand the fascination. It reminds me of a stager a childhood friend built. It was Estes Design of the Month, #27, from 1964 -- the Deacon. His model was the first I'd ever seen with fully filled balsa parts showing no grain. Inspired me to do better finishes.

The plan is in Estes Model Rocket News Vol 4 No 3 November 1964. Complete with a parts list and full size patterns.

Also here on the JimZ site, although the patterns may have to be scaled to get the right size


http://www.spacemodeling.org/jimz/eirp_27.htm


The root edge of the booster fin should be 2 3/4". The root edge of the upper stage fin 5.0".

Joe

Here is the MRN issue with the Deacon fin templates that Joe mentioned. These old stagers are cool.

Another MRN three-stager that was really cool was the 3-stage Ring Rocket. One I have always wanted to build, but never got around to.

GH, do you know which MRN issue had that plan? I don't recall that one, but I'd like to see it.
