#1&2. Here is a before and after of an Astron Mark, (Blue Tube/ Silver N.C.)
#3 . this Goony had all of it's fins broke off, I just could not bring myself to repaint this one.
#4. the S.P.E.V. was in really bad shape. I had to completely
rebuild the lower section. Now this S.P.E.V. has 24 m.m. Motor Mount. Fly s great on a C11-5.

# 5. This X-Ray is from around 1966, It was missing all of it's fins. It has the original Dark Brown
Gun rubber Shock Cord and the Type 1 Checker Board Parachute.

I have flown all of these Rebuilds at least once since they were restored.

I have no idea how the pictures changed the order from that they were posted ?

Ditto. These are great. I especially love the Mark, X-Ray and Goony. I built an SPEV a few years back with a 24mm engine mount and got laughed at at a QUARK launch. Then it flew like a bat out of hell and no one laughed anymore.
