I buy School rockets and give them to all minors who will take them or their parents. I have to restock. I have not tried the 3” because I would cheerfully spend 4x as much.

I have built a number of the original School Rockets both by myself and in leading group builds. It's a marvelous model. I built one of the Gyroc clones when I first got back into rockets about 10 years ago, and I have an Alway Saturn V from the recent run in the kit stash.

Jerry, I've seen pictures of the small BMS school rocket, but never bought any. I bought a 3" diameter school rocket from Bill and Mary at NARAM-60, it's a real nice rocket. They do sell an upgraded version of it too. It's not listed on their website, so if you want to purchase it you have to ask them for it.

Never built a kit, but I have bought a bunch of tubes and balsa from him. I do have a Bomarc kit, but it's still sealed.

Scott, I’ve built a BMS Drifter Clone and a 3” diameter school rocket. Both are nice kits. I have a couple of the Imp kits and the Peter Alway Saturn V in my build pile. I’d like to get one of the upgraded 3” diameter school rocket kits too.

They talked about the 29mm motored 3” School Rocket and an add-on payload section/e-bay at NARAM this year - both things that can only make a really good rocket even better!
