It looks great Tim, I don't know what you were worried about. What did you use for wheels? It looks like the outside is the printed part, but what's in the middle?

Thanks.

The wheels are a bit of a cheat. the larger ones are wooden wheels I found at a craft store.

The smaller one....I"m not sure what that is. I found a bag of these small, white, plastic things that look like "O" rings, but arnt, down in the basement with a pile of other stuff we bought at a second hand store. I dont know just what they are, but take a black sharpie to 'em, and they look great as wheels. :)

:oops:

I"m embarrased to say I dont know what the scale is. I normally only build FG models, and just build em at what ever scale they print out at. This is the "large" version.

Ah...just checked and its 1:25 scale. Wow! I had no idea it was so large :oops: :D

Oh me too! Bigger is Better 8)

I'm toying with an idea for a Gemini-titan rocket. I built that very nice Gemini capsule from Delta7. Its 1/24th scale. Over on the Hudson Valley webpage, there is a 1/48th scale rocket. I just have to print out the rocket at 200%, and it should fit the amazingly detailed capsule from D7.

And it will be BIG!

I hope you have a 2 story house with a room open to both floors. Otherwise you'll have to do like NASA and park it on your front lawn.

I wonder what the neighbors would say about a rocket parked on the lawn?

Don't know. Maybe they'll be so glad it's not an old car on blocks they won't notice. :twisted:

of course, Tim you'll have to fit estes engines and try those rockets out...I don't recommend firing too close to the neighbors house, late on the 4th of July, and don't ask me why I know.

Back in my younger days I built a large scale C-130 plastic model and thought it would be fun to try a JATO experiment with micro rocket engines. Because of that little flight test, I now say the same as birder. 8)

I''ve given up on my B-36. I've been trying to finish it for months, but the dang wings and engines are driving me nuts. I had to finaly put it in cold storage in the basment.

I'm the sort of person that cant work on two things at once, so the models have been piling up that I want to build. Now that the B-36 monster is out of the way I got myself back into high gear. Here is my FG "TA-183". Pretty straight forward build. I had to change the landing gear to toothpicks coloured with a silver sharpie, but the rest is pretty much FG.

I built this and then tried to give it a shiny coat by "painting" it with Future floorwax. It did give a shiny finish, but as I was applying a second coat, I noticed some of the ink was blurring and running a bit. I guess I should not have painted with a brush, but with a spray gun of some kind. Oh well; it was a learning experience. I also had trouble with the rigging and finaly gave up on trying to get it right.

Also, I messed up the dihedral on the wing.
