This is probably the first of a number of similar requests that some people will make: Could whoever posted that great Apollo LES project re-post it, especially the constructional details? I'm doing a related (probably purely theoretical!) design, and it'd be a great help - and besides, it's an impressive project!

Actually I'm currently building a new BT-70 version Of the PA-2 but it got stalled with all of the kit making and nose cone orders.

Gus built the PA-1 and mine is the PA-2

I'll get back to it when I get caught up.

I tried to upload the pdf of the 1/12th scale Pad Abort but the pdf file was to big so I had to convert it to a jpeg.

Thanks! Would I seem greedy if I asked for the constructional drawings, too, in that AutoCAD add-on that lets you convert CAD drawings into illustrations? Anyway, great looking project, and thanks again!

Hi Gordon!

The bad flu I had forced me in front of the PC instead of the workbench...

I gave the launchpad a try, do you have any more precise infos about it? Basically I scaled it from the picture but I'd like to check it.





Thank you!

This was one of my favorite threads on the old TRF.

Hopefully Gus will chime in on that since he built the launch base. Basically for the BT-70 version (1/11.7th scale) it's just 1/4" wood dowels glued together.
