    Very cool! Are you trying to duplicate any particular rocket garden?

    I'm not trying to replicate a particular one.

    I started with the Merc Atlas to complement my Merc Redstone.
    And then though that a Gemini Titan would fit in nice.
    And then realized I wasn't going to manage 1/35 Saturns, so I started over at 1/100.
    At some point, I noticed the resemblance to the KSC space garden.

    I think 1/35th scale Saturns would be great!

    So I happened upon this thread and it inspired me to go dig through my stash. I had one of these kits at one time and though I remember starting it, I never finished it. I've rearranged and relocated the stash a few times and didn't remember seeing it so I thought perhaps it had gotten lost or trashed in a move and had written it off. I happened to look in a "Model Rocket Range Kit" box that I'd been overlooking thinking it was just a launchpad and controller, and to my surprise, it was my Mercury Atlas kit! Looks to be pretty much totally intact so I suppose I'll need to move it up in my build queue.

    Both the 1:100 scale flew today at Bong. Both were unstable. Gus went for a swim in the pond, but was rescued quickly and is fine. John broke of the fins on one side, and I'm rethinking Wally at 1/35th scale. I decided it was too windy to fly the big Atlas.

    (I did get my L1 cert flight in, though).
