Thumbs up New Design: Sky Ace

Here is a new design I have called the Sky Ace. It has an interesting
combination to make this nose cone. I used the BC-1631 nose cone and an
BR1016S balsa reducer to make this combination. Both are put together
with a 1.5 inch piece of ST-16. I also decided to dress this sci fi design up a bit with
a few 1/8 inch Launch Lugs as well. All Semroc parts also.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas to ALL, JP.

Smile New Design: Exodus Explorer

This design I call the Exodus Explorer. This one was kind of a happy accident. I wanted to add a small section of body tube after the lower paper transition and accidentally added it between them. I liked this different look, so I added some fins between the transitions.
All Semroc parts.

James, your design work just keeps getting better. I wish my rusty brain cells could show half as much creativity. Looking forward to seeing the remaining designs for the series.

Smile New Design: Rogue Dart

Thanks Craig. I am glad you enjoy the designs. A compliment coming from a fellow designer means alot . I am afraid to say that I will save the best for last though .
I am really looking forward to the next Barclone update and the new website look. Keep up the creative work on your end as well. My brain cells couldn't handle all that programing .


This design I have called the Rogue Dart. It has tube fins that are
tucked in front of the rear transition. This makes for a design that is
not very areodynamic and the flight specs show it. I guess its more for
looks that preformance.

Smile New Design: Cargo Starr Transport Upscale

Thanks Scott, here is an upscale of one of your favorites. If the truth
be known you are the one with the true talent. I thank you for all your
good work here at Ye Olde as well, JP.

This design is an upscale of the Cargo Starr Tannsport 13mm design. I
finally found a combination fo tubes to make this design possible in an
upscale. Using three St-7 in a row I found that the ST-225 will surround
the tubes alomost perfectly. Looks like the Centuri fellas manys years
ago were thinking ahead or could it be Carl's doing? I wonder?

Smile New Design: Marx Space Ranger

This next design is a 13mm design called the Marx Space Ranger. Its
inspiration was a vintage toy by the Marx company I found on ebay. I am
using the ST-3630 body tube for the ring fin. Its a good tube to use as a ring fin as its a large size tube and still somewhat lightwieght. This one should prove to be a fun flyer. Its surely falls in the Schoolyard Sounder catagory with the A10T-3 and maybe the Backyarder with the 1/2A3T-2.

Smile New Design: Stardust Voyager

This design has sort of a vintage sci-fi look to it. I call it the
Stardust Voyager. It is at about this piont in my designs that I started
getting away from the ST-7 tube as a main body tube. After flying many
rockets with John at his Dicovery Bay, WA I decided I did not like trying
to stuff a 12 inch parachute in those 3/4 inch tubes. This design uses
an ST-9 tube but I have noticed that there are not many choices in nose
cone with that size. My personal favorite is now the ST-10 tube which
solves both of the problems above.

Ya, mine too. But only because it's used on my favorite rocket, the Payloader II. Here's to hoping I can order a Payloader II kit from Semroc by next Christmas with my Christmas discount.
