More "Model Airplane Babble"...So, you've been forewarned.

                                        "The Bucket 'o Planes"

A little more story-telling about the control liners we flew back in the day.

The predecessor to Uncle Wayne's "Buster" was the Carl Goldberg "Shoestring" stunt control liner. Also designed to resemble a classic pylon racer, it debuted in 1961 or so, to be followed by "Buster", and "Cosmic Wind" a year later.  The photos give an idea of their relative sizes.

Wayne first built the Shoestring, which was eventually lost due to a line break.  He then built the Buster that survives to this day.

I bought this Shoestring at a swap meet in Mattoon, Illinois in 2017.  It, another Shoestring, and a team racer (all complete with engines) were rather cruelly dumped in a plastic bucket, with a price tag that sent me scrambling for my money roll.  No, the bucket was not included.
The red Shoestring's Monokote was seriously delaminating, and will need a recovering job that hasn't yet happened.

After carefully removing the original owner's AMA number from the old Monokote, and stitching it's equally old cloth hinges, the yellow/red Shoestring is up and ready for flying with it's own designated set of flying lines and handle, so some video/photos will be forthcoming.

Still don't have a "Cosmic Wind", but the swap meets are starting crank up, so...

One really caught my attention, the Space Jet 21 with a .049 Babe Bee in the nose. I guess 21 mean 21 inch wingspan. That is a rarity, never saw the kit except in your vintage CG ad. When I was growing up never saw it in any of the hobby shops, so I guess it must have been withdrawn early. Any plans available for such a rare bird?

Only thing I knew to do was a search on Outer Zone, with no results. Hope someone here has some info.

Thanks, Kim. Also searched Hip Pocket Aeronautics, no luck. Only post I could find was:

The Space Jet 21 is the rarest. I guess it was ultimately replaced by the Li'l Wizard.
