About the SLS Lil’ Augie
Originally, the Lil’ Augie was released as a free plan #10 in Model Rocket News circa the Fall of 1962. The current design is loosely based on that rocket but up-scaled to take advantage of the 29mm Black Powder motors that are now available. Phil Queen and Dave Combs of local rocketry club Wright Stuff Rocketeers (NAR Section 703) contributed greatly to the development of this kit and have our deepest gratitude.
