Have the parts to build 3 from Semroc, this one will be fun and only flown w/
1/2 A & A's...

p.s. The Alpha was my 1st. back in '68...Dad & I launched it at the UOG sport field
in the evening...swish pop and it vanished literally as the Sun settled.

My first was the Alpha also in 1967, I still have it !!! plus my 1st Constellation......
