Scratch Screaming Yellow Zonkers (Scratch)

Review

Brief: I took a Totally Tubular and added an extension to the body tube, spin fins, and a new theme. Modifications: Originally I modified it to become a spin-stabilized two-stager, but that didn't work, so this'll describe how to convert a regular kit to a 'Screaming Yellow Zonker!'. ... [More]

Scratch Astron Invader (downscale) (Scratch)

Review

( Contributed - by David Sindel - 10/22/08) Brief: This is my semi-downscale of the old (1965-67) K-19 Astron Invader. The wings and fins are 2/3 of the original, but I kept the 18mm motor mount. It's a very unique glider with unusual flights and a fairly easy build. Construction: ... [More]
