Comrades:

I've built the BMS Drifter, Mini-Bomarc and several Alway Arcas. All flew well.

In the stash is an Alway Saturn V , Gyroc and an Arcas or two.

I want an Astrobee 1500.

I've built the Mini Bomarc (I'd love to get another one,) and the Mars Snooper. Both are great kits.

I drew up the instructions for the 3" School Rocket.
Great demo model for a very low price.

I bought two of the FSI Viking I clone of the month kits, and built one. I did the same with the Mini Bomarc, but the unopened kit is nowhere to be found. I have a couple of the pie-plate Invaders left over if anyone wants one. "Flew" one last year, with predictable results.

What does the pie-plate invader look like, do you have a picture?

I don't intend to hijack this thread, but does anyone have a photo or drawing of the BMS 1/16" basswood Rocket Rack #DSRR2B5? I see that they're still available.

Thanks!

I assume the Semroc Invader was a clone of the old Estes kit. The pie plate reference is obvious.

They are copies of the Centuri racks done in 1/16" basswood. Your number is a 5 pack. They will look more or less like the fiberboard ones that Centuri did and SEMROC did later on.

I do remember seeing one of those listed at uncle mike’s rocket shack several months ago. I do understand the pie plate reference.
