Clone of the Month Club

Balsa Machining Service is now launching it’s “Clone of the Month Club”.

Each month BMS will offer a clone kit available for purchase.
BMS says:

“All fins & tubes will be precision laser cut.

All kits that originally had decals will come with Water slide decals matching the originals.

If Instructions are not supplied a URL pointing to the appropriate website where the instructions can be found will be given.

Unlike standard BMS clone kits “clone of the month” kits will not be supplied with a parachute. This helps keep costs down and virtually no one in the target audience for these kits needs yet another “assembly required” plastic parachute! You can always, of course, order a chute to go with the kit if you want as a separate item from our website.

This will be a great new resource for rocketeers craving those classic kits. This months clone is the FSI Viking 1


Here is my Viking 1 finished:

    The header card for the Viking 1 may be the only place I’ve ever seen a claim that tube fins “result in greater altitudes than has been possible from flat fin conventional designs”. I wonder if the author of this statement really believed it.

    I ordered 2. At $6 ea., I couldn’t resist.
