I cloned a Lambda 8, Phobos, Theta 37 and Zeus recently. They're simple designs, but always get a "What?" when they're announced at the pads. Perfect B6-4 Field flights on an A8-3. Got any more MRI plans, Scott?

Bill,

Many people clone old, nostalgic, favorite rockets from our youth.

Few clone old designs that nobody has ever heard of.

We salute you!

I have the plans and fin template for the Zeus, but you already built that one. I'll put it up here shortly.

I still have a Theta-37 I built back in the '60s. I painted it an ugly blue with black fins and nose cone. Never flew it but at least I still have it along with an Estes Arcas and Saturn 1B I built around the same time.

It is cool that one MRI kit, the Zenith, is still in production by Quest. Has a clear payload section and plastic cone now, but pretty much the same design.
