Back when the SBB was around, I got tired of all of them, so I built a Super
Ranger. The only concession to scale is that it has FOUR 24mm MMTs instead
of 3 29mm MMTs. it's cheaper and easier to cluster BP motors, and I have the
flexibility of flying with 2 or 4 motors. The only Estes part I used was the
nose cone. Tube and centering rings were LOC.

The Ranger (K-6) kit was definitely before the BB (K-23) kit. But prior to the kit, the Bertha was a free plan, and before that it was Vern's design. Only Vern could tell us which came first.
