    I found some free plan downloads that interested me in back issues of the Apogee Peak of Flight newsletter but the link to the plans/downloads are broke on some of them. I contacted Apogee and they told me that the material was lost and they no longer have the files. I was hoping that someone here might have downloaded them while the links worked and could share them with me. The plans and issue numbers are as follows:

    Bisix 376
    Dark Matter Probe 369
    DETLANX 387
    SEA SNAP 366

    Snackle 392
    Snipet 91
    TARMON 380
    shx/tvm-01 72
    xam 369

    Even if you have just one, that would be great!

    Thank you,
    -Bob

    I did see that thread while I was looking but he wrote

    I'll not release any of the plans I created or the Rocksim files, since most of those kits were commercial, and might still become such. Besides, I like Shrox's designs and don't want to undercut his work.

    So that seemed like a dead end for me. Besides I didn't see the three I want the most in his thread. They are the rockets on the list that are all caps and in bold.

    Ah. Well, for what it's worth, there seem to be issues of Apogee Peak of Flight newsletters where those rockets are featured towards the end. The links to the downloads don't work, but they have some good pictures that could be enough to get working on an OR model or something. I know it's not quite what you asked for, but...

    I would also post your request on YORF. Shrox still hangs around there sometimes.

    Rocksim files for the TVM-01 and Snipet are here:https://www.rocketreviews.com/rocksim-326298.html
    For the Apogee website, if you find a download link for a particular plan and it shows a bunch of numbers when you click on it, try right clicking and "save target as" instead. That will save it as a .rkt file and you can open it in OR or Rocksim.
    You can also try the Wayback Machine and search for archived pages for the Apogee website. You can PM me if you need assistance with this.
    I'll have to search but I think I downloaded some of these a while back and printed to hard copy, but the zip files were lost in a hard drive crash.

    BTW the plans for the TVM-01 are in issue 73 (not 72) and no download is needed. Just print that page.
    Parts list, fin templates and inch scale are all there.

    I'll save the TVM-01 and Snipet on my laptop tonight.

    I tried the Wayback Machine without any luck. That was my first time trying it.

    I can always my own design inspired by the Shrox designs. Might just go that route.

    20190711_190311.jpg Copied the Snipet concept with some random stuff and parts from a Scion that core sampled after recovery decided to abandon ship. Actually flies better than it looks like it should..

    I saw a couple “by Shrox” designs on Fliskits and thought that was all. I’m astonished there are so many others.

    Just go look at David Qualman’s thread of builds. It’s amazing.
