    Scratch Build - Upscaled 3-in "Menace-3D"

    Intro: Over on another thread in the 3D Printing section, there's a friendly competition going on: TRF Challenge #1: Estes Menace and I thought this would be a great opportunity to push myself to learn more Fusion 360. I started back in March 2023 to 3D print small parts, and started...

    Estes Greyhawk Upscale

    So, for some reason I have fallen in love with the idea of building an upscale version of the Estes Greyhawk (#2068). I know, I know, I am quite new to this, but...

    Mach 1 4" "Groovy Tube" Questions

    I may be in possession of the only Mach 1 4" "Groovy Tube" fiberglass rocket kit ever sold by the original owners of Mach 1 Rocketry, Ronald Dunn and Steve Skinner.

    Buzz Nau Omega Centauri Upscale u

    I just joined the forum and was in the last stages of an upscale build of a Buzz Nau design called Omega Centauri. I'm a BAR and since I'm stuck at home, have way more time time to build. Fortunately, I rent so my honey-do list was small and dispatched in the first week of stay at home in...

    Sold Tango Papa 2x Mars Lander

    Another hard-to-find upscale for the 2020 winter building season! Another HP rocket that I don't think I will be able to fly any time soon due to losing our local field. Complete in-the-box 2x Mars Lander upscale. One of the local rocketeers at MMMSC used to have the Estes, 1.6x and 2x Mars...

    4" Upscale Screaming Green Meenie

    OK, this has been in the back of my mind for over 5 years. Rediscovering my Screaming Green Meenie gave me the impetus to pick this project back up. And it's improved for having waited 5+ years. The original version had a 29mm MMT. The current version has a 54mm MMT :D My plan is to...

    Protostar upscale

    So, I am going to attempt a 4 inch version of an Estes protostar. I absolutely love the lines of this rocket, and want to build a steampunk upscale. However, I am in need of a 1:1 scan of the fin profile. If anyone could help me out, I’d appreciate it! Thanks in advance!

    Found Decal scan for Estes Ascender

    I have built a 2x upscale of the Estes Ascender for my L2 project and need to make some decals for it. It feels a bit naked:( . Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Rocksim - is it possible to scale a rocket (and all the parts) in Rocksim?

    I would like to increase the size of a model I have created in Rocksim by 25%. Is there a scaling tool where I can scale the whole rocket without having to remodel every part? I would then go in a adjust as needed. Thanks Ben
