Default RE: .074 MARAUDER !!!

Sounds like he simplified it later on. He loaned me a Zerox copy of his hand-drawn plans that year and they showed at least 3 million parts. The "fuselage" was a cardboard rocket-tube with balsa around it. He used all sorts of materials one didn't usually associate with model airplanes. He was a VERY creative guy with his own unique drummer. The whole concept began a few years earlier with a double-scale Voo Doo powered by a Fast Combat-type .36 on bladder pressure. It might have been a .36X but I don't remember for sure. He tuned his engines using a pitch-pipe as a reference. I think he wrote a magazine article about that. I wonder if he's still around.
