"Great '50s retro look"
kuririn111111111
This is a great looking low power rocket to add to your sci-fi collection. The build was straightforward, no gotchas. The rivet decals were tedious to apply, but worth it at the end. The result is a cool looking bird that could have starred in a 1950's sci-fi movie. Just be sure to line up the notch you cut in the ring at the end of the tube to the launch lug, that's what it's there for. Will upload a picture soon.

"Beautiful sci-fi design!"
acroray
This is a great kit, and some careful work can make it into an excellent showpiece. The mix of rings, spars and the rivet decals give it a unique Jules Verne look. It is a bit heavy, though, and your 'chute may tend to get tangled in the three spurs trailing from the fins. But this is one build I thoroughly enjoyed and always stays on prominent display.

 
"Good looking retro bird, but those fin dowels....."
wallyum (Ft. Thomas, KY)
I built one of these early in my BAR days and the whole project went south on me. Never did figure out what the issue was, but the one and only flight I attempted with it was a disaster from start to finish. My IP was in the middle of a box of rockets at one of our local fields that no longer allows rocketry. The trouble started at liftoff, when the IP attempted to take the whole pad with it as it launched. Naturally this caused a flight anomaly, but it recovered. The pad crashed to the gravel parking lot and the rocket continued skyward. At ejection the chute fouled on the dowels and the whole shootin' match crashed to the ground in the same gravel lot. It was a hard impact, and some of the rocks pierced the body tube. Two of the three fins were splintered. I was disgusted and threw the whole mess in a trash can at the edge of the parking lot, but it gnawed at me for years. I finally succumbed to the internal pressure and bought another one. I'm happy to report that the one and only flight didn't try to take the pad along and managed to recover successfully. I feel vindicated. Still not planning on putting all those rivet decals on. The paint job will have to suffice.
