I finished test building of Rockot.
Leo, as allways, great job. My best to you.
That looks great, Leo. I'm just about finished with the Tsyklon-4. Just finishing up stage 3, so I'm ready for the launch pad. Hopefully, I'll have it finished tonight or tomorrow. I'll build the Rockot next. Thanks again for all the great models.
Sweet! I can't wait for it. I need to build more Russian rockets. They just seem so much cooler than US rockets for some reason.
These are views of disassembled model.
I love spacecraft , spaceships , space rocket...everything what is connected with space exploration...but this is just the horn :-D
Of course it doesn´t change the fact , that this is very nice construct and build real-space model:wave7:
I have read about and seen some pictures (see attachment) that the Rockot is launched from a 'launch container'. Is that true? If yes, wouldn´t this be a nice add-on. Do you plan this Leo?
Your Rockot is again a very nice and very well turned out model. I like it very much and will build it certainly soon. :thumb::thumb::thumb:
Yes, indeed the Rockot is launched from a 'launch container'.
Thank you for the good idea!
By the way, Rockot launched NASA`s GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) satellites on 17th March 2002 from Plesetsk Cosmodrome.
I´ve read about the GRACE and I believe , that it is very important project , but my quote was about the shape of the rockot It is very nice how it is simple I know - the intercontinental rockets were always simple-shaped like that R7 is simply classic in all modifications :inw:
Looking good! How soon to release do you think?
I released Rockot now!
If anybody will find errors, report me please...announce1
Thank you Leo. I'm printing it now.
Will you be releasing the launch platform for the Tsyklon? I think that's what you have on your web page between the Tsyklon-4 and ROCKOT?
Yes, I'll be releasing the platform. But at first I'll finish drawings and have to build my own...
I finished your Rockot model and again everything fits very well. I could not find any error. The only thing I modified was the use of a second inner strip for the grey interstage (c6) to get a tougher fixation of stage C (Breeze KM). But this might be dependent from paper thickness.
Great job! I'm almost finished building mine. I have been diverted to another project but when it's finished I'll finish the Rockot - another great model from Leo.
Is there a link to this rocket???
Space flight paper modelling
That looks cool,
where do I get it
