Next project the european VEGA rocket
The scale will be 1:96
As usual I will use Google Sketch-up for the design
This should be interesting. I have some ESTES rocket engines I purchased cheap at a Tag sale. Maybe I need to fly a rocket!
The first pieces
The 3D model is kinda ready
After unfolding, is time for the 2D graphic
Ready for test-build , anyone interested ?
I am ready and willing to test build this wonderful model for you.
Well here is the test build. It was an easy build, all the seams lined up perfectly. All the formers fit snug and were proper size. Only draw back is you have to cut your own tabs. I also did find that it best on former "E" that goes on the bottom of part "9" that you don't cut out the center hole, leave the former whole that way you have more glue surface for "10" and "F". And also color it black.
All in all it is a well designed model.Thank you Dragos for this little gem.
Thanks Inky for the quick build. I've made the modifcations and now the model will be available in the download area.
Thank You Dragos for uploading this fine model. it is now in the "Downloads" section and has been approved.
@inky, Man, you work fast, great job, it looks perfect!

Zathros, It is not perfict, I built it like most people would....fast. now if I was going to build it like the big boys here I would of took my time and then it would of been perfict. I like to build them like most people would that way I can spot the problems better. I am going to rebuild it again but this time I going to take my time and be more picky.
It was still a great build with no problems, every thing lined up great. Dragos does a great job at designing. Can't wait to see more.
