Can you scan them and send them over?

BEC................when I click on your link for the pattern sheet I get a 'damaged file' message. Is it just me, or does this link work for other folks?

I have balsa, launch lugs and recovery system stuff on hand. I also ordered (well, already had planned to order) some RA-2055 rings and some JT-55Cs from which to make an engine mount. I have the BT-20 and engine hooks on hand.

I will set it up with a Semroc BT-55 baffle and kevlar shock cord attach and probably use a smaller-than-24-inch parachute. I have materials to make a mylar one of any size I want on hand.

For my contribution to this, here's the pattern sheet in .pdf form, converted from the TIFF file on the JimZ site, so now it's all in this thread. I just did a "no scaling" test print and based on the length of the BT-55 marking guide, the parts look to be the right size.

It's nice to have fancy software at work sometimes...

BTW here's mine flown at NARAM 46.

I got in trouble with JimZ 'cause I didn't paint it white.

Oh...and this was before I could do decals.

Maybe I should come up with something?

How about a 200% scale-up using BT-80 for the central tube (with an 80K nose cone) and BT-50 outboards using 50K and 50Y nose cones for the "Systems Pod"!

Way ahead of you!

I ordered the parts years and years ago.

The outboards are Vaughn Brothers' 1" OD tube. I ordered the custom cone from BMS. Main body cone is the long white plastic BT-80 cones Estes used to make.

Aaaaand I have decals for it. I forget who I ordered them from.

To be honest, I'm not feeling very ambitious these days. I might package up and sell the part collection so someone else can take on the chore.
