I actually have a clone of one of these laying somewhere. It's in one of those boxes that I haven't seen since the move.

I use to have one of these; lost it when I used it for a 13 mm streamer duration event at a
NAR Sanctioned contest...

I built one of those back in the mid-1970s.

I think I may have even flown it, too.

The payload section was a piece of BT-30 (I think).

Someday I may have to take it out an repaint it. I didn't use any sanding sealer/wood filler on the balsa parts because I repainted it 6-7 times with Testors bottle brush paints!

The whole rocket was BT-30. I bought a big piece from TT and built (or started) a bunch of the BT-30 birds. The only one I've flown was the Mark II.

Now that Carl has BT-30 tubes and BNC-30 cones in his list, this is one classic model we can clone easily...

Use his TR-7 to act as centering rings for a piece of ST-5 as the motor tube...

He has the NB-30 listed for the bulkhead...

Thanks, Carl!

I made my own by soaking the end of a piece of BT-30 in super glue, shoving it into a balsa block, and slicing off what came out. Not pretty, but effective.

I had one of these and didn't know it was so rare. When I returned to the hobby after all those years, it was one of the first ones I lost. I tried to fly it on a field that was way too small for a windy day.

It might not be. I'd just never seen one packaged up before.

I've never seen one of those MIP either.

in fact I was not aware of the kit at all until I found it while surfing the kit list on YORP.

ben in the 'to build' que for a while, I even cut the basswood fins out, but have yet to include the parts on an order, lol .

Don't feel bad, Al. Even people who know EVERYTHING didn't know about the Hornet.

I just remembered this when I read your post. I had to go back through the RMR archives.
