Supersonic Sam Model Plans for a Jetex 50

Supersonic Sam plans and article

It is too bad that the Jetex series of engines is no longer being manufactured. They were a source of affordable real "jet" engines back in the 1960s and 1970s when I was a kid with only paper route money for financing my habit. If you were lucky enough to get the wire fuses to ignite the pellets, the little Jetex 50s made a great whooshing sound as they propelled your balsa model through the air. My friend, Jerry Flynn, and I mounted them to the Guillows stick and sheet dime store gliders. Here is a plan for a little more sophisticated model called the Supersonic Sam. It appeared in the June 1957 edition of American Modeler.
