Model Rocket Building: Vern Estes Original Big Bertha
From a 2005 post by "A Fish Named Wallyum" on YORF - Here's some background on Vern Estes and the original Big Bertha. "Vern built this rocket to use at demonstration launches. It proved to be so popular that they later made it a free plan and then a kit. It became the largest selling rocket Estes ever made. I believe it is now also the "oldest" kit still made." In a recent post Bernard Cawley added: "It, along with many other things that Vern and Gleda have kept or collected, will be housed by the Museum of Flight in Seattle. The Stine archive is already there. Actually the first Big Bertha ...

Model Rocket Building: Jeff Taylor's Steampunked ACME Spitfire
Jeff Taylor (FatBoy on TRF) "Steampunked" his FlisKit ACME Spitfire. The finished results are amazing! CLICK HERE There are hundreds of rivets and plenty of cardstock trim. I especially like the shingles on the fin root edge and the Zebra wood veneers with barrel hoops on the upper section. The stand-off launch lug is hidden in the pipework on the right side. Jeff is donating the model to the NARAM 56 auction. If I were there, I'd bid on it! Turned 180 degrees shows more detail. Check out the screen on the lowest section shroud. The gauges add dimension and more detail. I thought the ...

Model Rocket Building: ASP Colonel Build, Part 1, Parts
I haven't built many of the ASP (Aerospace Specialty Products) kits except for two of their Micro Maxx models. I've always liked the looks of the Corporal. This is a BT-50 based, 18mm model. ASP also makes a BT-55, 24mm version. I picked this one up at JonRocket.com. Parts are standard and high quality. Parts of interest, clockwise from the upper left: The clay nose weight, vinyl roll pattern, two longer 3/16" square balsa for tunnels, a metallic orange 12", 8 sided Mylar parachute, two smaller 1/8" square balsa tunnel pieces, red motor mount tube, large screw eye and ...
