Based on the actual rocket being developed by Elon Musk's SpaceX company, this particular rocket is in scale with the Ares I and V etc that I've built, and is quite small in comparison. It's scratch built from the ground up from cardstock. It will fly on Estes mini engines and recover via a streamer. It's about 65% complete as of tonight.

Yes, I'd like to know as well... I've seen it in the background on both this and the Ares V thread and INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW!!! :)

It look really cool... sorta like the "Messiah" spacecraft from "Deep Impact"... (course that has to be the STUPIDEST name for a spacecraft in movie history, AFAIC)

So what's the story?? :)

Great build on the Ares V and F-9, BTW...

Later! OL JR :)

Finished:



Falcon Launch! (as opposed to punch)


I'll finish the flight equipment on this rocket and the Ares V sometime this week.
