    Dollar tree has various flying saucers for $1, lugs and engine mounts not included. You just have to recognize them as saucer candidates when you see them. :)

    I'm digging the Ring of Fire. It reminds me of that often forwarded video of the flaming fireworks wheel fight that's often attributed to the Philippines and other such foreign places.

    I'm also digging some of Applewhite's other stuff too....

    Be careful with this one, on many if not most rockets the additional tail weight at the far aft end of the rocket with no additional finnage will make it unstable.

    Look up Lil Augie

    http://www.spacemodeling.org/jimz/eirp_10.htm
    Not too tough a a scratch build

    A relatively safe ChAD (Cheap And Dirty) staged rocket.

    Can but it on erockets but at $30 a bit pricy.

    I agree about the stability issue. Need a long rocket and big fins

    George,

    Do you think the presence of the Spider in the web will upset the aerodynamics and cause pitch problems ?

    I like the Halloweenness of those saucers at top.

    BTW, do they still make grocery store shrimp rings? Or did the budget sushi mussel that out? I wish that I could have saved a few to do saucer duty. With the clear tops, a person could put all sorts of blinky LEDs in them and make them really UFO like.

    I don't know much about the shows, but the 1940-60's era is fascinating. After looking into this, I've been wondering why no one ever released the Adamski-style or "Haunebu" UFO's:

    A-UFO-photographed-by-George-Adamski-634792.jpg s-l1000.jpg peghaun01X.jpg s-l1000-1.jpg

    One of these, or a good base for it, might seal the deal.

    Looks like a good scratch build project.

    I think that’s where I got the idea. Not quite sure I’m primed for a scratch-built at this point, but at least I have a pretty good idea of what’s available. I try to stick with a single project at a time. This is only to use up a few motors after all.

    I seem to remember a picture of a big German Haunebu kit being planned, but the company went belly up before production. I think it was a 24 or 29 mm mount.
