    Dr. Zooch Space Launch System Basic Information

    Dr. Zooch Space Launch System Basic Information.

    Dr. Zooch Rockets

    MODEL NAME: Space Launch System Also known as: SLS

    NUMBER:

    Introduced:
    Final Year:
    Designer:

    Type: Pseudo Scale
    Motor Mount: 1x18mm
    Recovery: Parachute
    Stages: 1
    Length: ~17"
    Diameter:
    Span: 4"
    Weight: 2.7 oz

    Mfg. Description: With the ending of the Space Shuttle program, as mandated by President Bush, followed by
    President Obama’s unexpected cancelation of the Shuttle’s replacement- the Constellation program-
    the United States was left without a federal manned spaceflight capability for the first time in a half
    century. The Congress found that unacceptable and thus mandated that the national policy would
    be that the USA must have a Shuttle replacement and that same launcher must be able to loft
    vehicles for exploration beyond low earth orbit. This heavy lift launch vehicle became known as the
    Space Launch System (SLS) and was placed into the NASA Authorization Act of 2010. Although
    NASA has refused to make public the details of the SLS, we here at Dr. Zooch Rockets have
    developed this kit based on leaked information. Thus, you can fly the SLS before NASA even gets
    started on it!

    The rocket stands just over 17 inches tall without fins and flies using or FlameFin design. It weighs
    2.7 oz. empty and has a 4 inch fin span. It is a single stage rocket with parachute recovery and uses
    18mm engines such as a “B” or a “C.” (Dr. Zooch 2012 Web Ad)

    Another great build from Boosterdude. Not only do you build 'em to perfection, you can photograph them as well. Very, very nice.

    I am getting ready to try and index this one (It does look great, by the way!) and am trying to figure out how to do it.

    My assumption, with a Zooch model, is that it is a SCALE entry. On reading a little more, I thought it might better fit into FANTASY SCALE.

    My inclination now is to do neither and list it as an original Zooch creation.

    Comments?

    Well, true enough Wes claims his stuff is "ant scale" and not particularly any one specific 'scale' religeously ahered to...

    It's not really "fantasy" scale either, unless NASA has another major shakeup and starts having programs canceled, cancelling flights, etc... Oh wait... better stay tuned on that count...

    Might be better off to just ask Wes directly where HE thinks it should be stuck...

    Here's the EFT-1, Shuttle, and SLS on home-made display stands I made from some scrap wood and dowels I had in the garage left over from some other projects. They look great together, but somehow they long for the company of more Dr. Zooch kits. I can't wait to fly them.
