SELWYN'S ASTRAL
Wing span: 22 1/2 Inches
Designed By: Royston B. Selwyn
Description: It was designed by one "Royston B. Selwyn". The editor of SAM Speaks, August 1997 wrote that "Doug McHard points out that the name of the designer of the Astral rocket model was an anagram of 'TOWNER' and 'BOYS'. He thinks they may have been hiding from the law – that on the use of fireworks!" However, there’s more to the name than an anagram of the names of the two law-evaders – the letters 'SLYN', to be precise. What can they signify?

The Astral Rocket Plane itself was advertised at a price of 6s. 6d., “plans only” 1s. 6d., and “rockets separate” (“which have received official sanction”) 7 1/2d. each.
