Nice. Looks like something from "Tom Swift and his Rocket Ship." Or maybe "Tom Corbett, Space Cadet."

'scuse me.....

ahhhh....what do you do when you get to the bottom of the ladder and you're still 20 feet above the lunar surface?

Is that a design flaw?

It reminds me of some of the rocketships from Japanese sci-fi/monster movies of the 1960's.

Okay.

How about one of the Earth ships from the movie "The Mysterians" (Toho Studio, 1957).

No, there's a ladder that extends from the bottom of the rocket. The astronauts keep it retracted when they're outside to keep the evil aliens from stealing the ship.

That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

Well, it has to be big. It has to go to the moon and back on a single stage. Then you have to have those big honkin' fins for stability in a vacuum. :p

20 feet wouldn't be all that bad on the moon since it's only 1/6 the Earths gravity. Just a little hop...

He he...;)

If I could only find my STARLOG Spaceships book!

Okay,

How about this movie:

"Battle in Outer Space" (Toho, 1959). Released in America by Columbia Pictures, 1960.

I think that's it.
