Default Aardvark Rockets SkyWriter BT-50 kit

I believe this was sent to me as a beta build, but I didn't know what that meant at the time. By the time I got up the nerve to try it, Aardvark had closed up shop.

That's a very interesting little model, Bill.

But I have to be that guy: would you rescan the templates with some kind of size reference in it (a ruler, or a one-inch square or some such) so that those who print it out can be sure it's the right size?

Thanks.

Sweet design. Now it makes a little more sense now that I can see the offset fins on the sustainer in the instructions my brain couldn’t figure it all out from the image.

That was the problem I had when I opened it in 2002. It makes sense now, but it made my head spin back then.
