We all know that the wintertime is when the oh-so-high master builder and administrator of this forum, Carl Tulanko, build his masterpieces in some of the most entertaining and informative threads around. So, let's hlep him decide what he's gonna build!

Just post ideas and such! :)

As a starting point how about a scale 100% full size Saturn V.

I am willing to accept he may wish to build it a little smaller, say 33% :D

6' foot tall Nike Hercules:

(4) 38mm or 54mm in booster
(1) 38mm or 54mm in sustainer

Sure, it's been done, but not recently

Always a nice motor eater and a crowd pleaser!

Mmm...Nike-Herc...would be pretty sweet with 4x I212SS's in the booster, staging to a fifth I212! :D

Nike ASP. full or half scale. Its a simple enough design, it could be a two stager... What more d'ya want?


A Nike Apache or Tomahawk would also be cool, or an origional Nike Smoke with the 36 degree cone... I dont think anyones ever done THAT before...

Well, keeping with the upscale FlisKits theme, I vote for a 38mm
or 54mm FarScape. ;)

54mm? 54mm? 54mm???

Gor for 75mm :D. The Farscape will look AWESOME on a M2200 Skidmark motor. :D

I liked brianc's idea best, UNTIL I read Doug's... Oh yeah! That's the one, Carl! :D :cool:

I know that Performance Rocketry makes a big HJ nose cone...that'd work :)

Not to switch gears, and with apologies to Jim, but I think he needs a level 3 Phoenix...he's got the Thoy version, time to upscale!

actually, i've always thought an upscale USS Grissom or Mars Snooper would make great subjects.

I'm kinda partial to the Tomahawk missile. Full scale would be cool. 18.3 feet long, 20.4 inches in diameter, 8 foot, 9 inch wingspan. That should be big enough, right?

What about an upscale Fliskits Nomad???:D

4 inch diameter, 54mm 1st stage, 38mm, 2nd stage, 38mm 3rd stage.

Now THAT would be sweet!!!

Or an upscale USS Grissom powered by an M1939W would be really, really sweet!!!:D :D :D
