    This my beta build of a forthcoming kit from Retired For Now (I thought the Zealot folks might want to see it that aren't at papermodelers)

    It's also designed to fly on a cluster of 2 18mm model rocket engines.

    Looks awesome! I would like to see a modification of this for the X-37B launched by the United States Air Force as the US second reusable space vehicle, and also since I am serving with the USAF. It would be a great model for my room.

    He's working on a version of that, too.

    AtlasV and Payloads

    The Atlas V in 1:96 is up at ECardmodels - the X-37B is there as a separate 1:48 model but it can be built at 1:96 to make a complete launch stack. There's also another X-37 version at Lower Hudson Valley ( that could be scaled down to fit.


    There's a few other compatible payloads as well (get out 'yer tweezers).






    Either slightly modified from larger versions or (slightly) simplified versions for this scale.

    Ohio - 1:48 is pretty huge. Erik T. Groen said he's working on a very detailed AtlasV, might keep an eye out for that for a big build.

    Anybody know where there is a detailed Delta IV model? Just thought this might be the best place to ask.

    The only D-IV models I've seen so far are at the LHVCC site, but I'm assuming you've already seen those.

    Yes, I have although I would like o see something with a bit more detail and a bit larger scale. I am an A1C in the United States Air Force and I would love to have the Air Force's rockets here in my dormitory at Edwards AFB, the birthplace of America's Space Program. Even though this isn't the right spot, since I work on F-16s I would also like to find a paper model of the F-16 and F-35 if there are any available.

    Atlas V 400 & 500

    I've been waiting for someone to design an Atlas V model for some time. Thank you for the hard work! I purchased the model from ecardmodels. I love the detailing on the payloads, including the New Horizons spacecraft.

    Take care, Kevin

    I have been scouring the web for patterns (That's how I found these forums) and I have seen the f-16 models but I couldn't tell you where:p

    It was pretty late last night but I did see them!
