Today's Featured Review
Contributed by Bill Eichelberger
The Semroc Micron was part of my first order from Semroc back in 2003. I built it and the Skyhook side by side, and because of these two became enamored with the Semroc way. The sleek Skyhook and the sturdy Micron combined the best that was available in the hobby at the time, reproductions of classic kits with updated recovery systems and laser cut fins. Rocketry Nirvana, and I inhaled deeply.
- ST-7 body tube
- Balsa nose cone
- Laser cut fin sheet
- Screw eye
- Thrust ring
- Kevlar and elastic shock cords
- Crepe paper streamer

Model Rocket Building: Peter Alway Saturn IV Build, Part 1, Plans and Parts
This model was from Peter Alway's Home Page. I can't seem to find it now! If anybody has a link, let me know. The website had plenty of sport and scale plans including a Vostok, Saturn I and a Flying Rabbit that looks better than the old Estes Cloud Hopper. You can get Peter Alway's books: Rockets of the World HERE and Scale Bash HERE Both highly recommended! There's one model that has been on my "to-do" list for a while. The SATURN IV! This is Peter's "psuedo-scale" design of a Saturn that could have existed between the Saturn 1 and Saturn V, the Saturn IV. Full resolution plans aren't ...

Model Rocket Building: Asking Permission Might Be A Good Start!
If you follow the blog, you might recognize this rocket. It's my two engine cluster model called the Big Girtha. It was adapted from a Quest Big Betty kit. I took this picture before it was launched at the Tampa TTRA monthly. Then I saw it in a EBAY listing. Maybe I should be flattered, but I'm not. A vendor was selling his 808 "Spy" cameras using my picture. Farther down the Ebay listing is a link to my YouTube video from the flight. I didn't buy and build the rocket, buy the camera, fly it, edit the video and post it for somebody else to make a profit. Build your own model, fly your ...
