Default A box of high power history hit my doorstep

I recently had the good fortune to pick up 4 classic HPR rockets, all built and well used but still fly-able.

All are are rare as can be...

ACE Shark
ACE Andante
AAA Model Aviation Fuels Lasersonic 1650
AAA Model Aviation Fuels Lasersonic 1650 F/G

If any of you guys would like info to clone, email me as I don't log in

It would be great if you could provide pictures of each model separately. The only ACE kit I have is a Mini-Allegro built in the early '80s. Still fly it at DARS launches. They allow many scout and other groups to fly with them and most of them have never seen a cluster.
I have a AAA catalog, but never bought any of their kits. Historical models that you now own.

Feeling all of 62 (and a half...)

Attach a pic of the Mini-Allegro after many repairs and repainting. Have a nice lift-off shot, but too big to post here.

Hi Chas-
