We are trying to go through these as quickly as possible. We got a lot of giant boxes full of them. We want to go through each one and make sure there complete. But we will take a look for that one for you :)
I'de be interested in a Scimitar Plan Pack.

Were you ever able to find a Scimitar plan pack to reproduce to sell to rocketeers?

What's included in these plan packs anyway. Instructions and templates?

I can just imagine ordering one and the instruction saying:

1. go to the hardware store and buy a jigsaw and a sheet of plywood
2. go to office supply store and get such glue-type and stick page 54 on the plywood
3. cut plywood along dotted lines of page 54 using jigsaw
4. btw, you'll need a workbench big enough for the plywood so find one somewhere
5. you bought the wrong type of glue so order it online and wait 3 weeks for delivery

etc.

Plan pack has all the templates, parts list, instructions, etc. The kit is a 2x 24mm single stage. I have that kit about 5 feet from me. The plan pack was a 2 stage, 2x24mm to 1x 24mm and it detailed the electrical ignition process that didn't use electronics. It was a pull-pin process that closed the firing circuit.

The drop-box info appears to be the kit, not the plan-pack. I would happily pay for the plan-pack if it were available.

Unfortunately, most of the Plan Pak's are no longer available, it seems.

The data I linked to is probably the closest, unless somebody has the Plan Pak and starts scanning . . . Then, of course, people will start howling about copyright.

Uncle Mikes Rocket Shack may still have some, the Scimitar was not shown but an email to him might help.

If no plan-pak is available with the two-stage info I will just have to experiment on developing my own!

Started too......

Nike Hercules 108.jpg

Then it got out of hand once I got my hands on a copy of Minakov's Nike Hercules drawing...its 1/8th-ish scale, the plan pack is a bit closer to 1/10th Sport Scale. Finally got the hardware needed for it, a total of 5x AT 29/40-120's. FYI the interstage transition looks ugly but its way easier than people think to make.

Was that the ones I posted or did you find a different drawing ?

Mine was from another source, it was the full color one, I had it blown up to the size I needed to be able to do 1:1 measurements without have to do the math involved with a Scale Factor (okay I did do that math once to find out how much to enlarge the original).
