    Also, the Sirius kit (BT-55 based) is larger than the Estes kit (BT-50).

    I did a "halfway-in-between" version where I just cloned an Estes Atlantis and changed the nose cone and engine pods;

    Mine too is a Sirius kit. At the time, it really taxed my abilities but the result was worth it.

    I chose a hammered metallic finish for mine. You might just be able to pick out some of the paint under all those decals!

    My build thread is in the archive: http://www.rocketryforumarchive.com/showthread.php?t=48255

    I have not flown it since TRF 2 came about so I don't have a current TRF thread on it. I'll need to fix that soon.

    I have to say I really enjoyed building this kit. It was one of my favorite rockets growing up and building it again rekindled alot of fond memories.

    Welcome to the FANTASY SCALE (Star Trek) USS Atlantis Gallery on TRF.

    This gallery showcases the FANTASY SCALE (Star Trek) USS Atlantis and those rockets derived from it. Particularly appropriate in this thread are the following:


    Estes: U.S.S. Atlantis: #1283
    Sirius: Refit U.S.S. Atlantis: S-0010



    as well as any upscales, downscales, clones, kitbashes or other derivative works. Even Goonies qualify!



    The Atlantis was never a part of the Star Trek Franchise but was created in the "Star Trek Style".

    Sirius Refit U.S.S. Atlantis (S-0010) Basic Information.

    [​IMG] Sirius Rocketry

    MODEL NAME: Refit U.S.S. Atlantis Also known as:

    NUMBER: S-0010

    Introduced:
    Final Year:
    Designer:

    Type: Exotic, Upscale
    Motor Mount: 1x24mm
    Recovery: Parachute
    Stages: 1
    Length: 37"
    Diameter: 1.325"
    Span:
    Weight: 9 oz.

    Mfg. Description: First in the Sirius Elite Mid-Power Series!

    The Atlantis is back after a drydock refit, looking more powerful and sleeker than ever!

    Loosely based on an old Estes favorite, this new version of the Atlantis has different looks and a more modern style, as if the original ship went into drydock for a complete overhaul with the latest technology!

    Based on David's popular high-power Refit Atlantis model (left), this approximately 1/3 scale model has all the lines and detail of David's original larger model, but is sized perfectly for exciting flights on 24mm D through F motors! Over 37" long and loaded with detail, this beauty is a pleasure to build.

    The Refit U.S.S. Atlantis features laser-cut light-ply parts, Kevlar™ Lariat shock cord mount, 24" mylar parachute, and through-the-wall mounting for a sturdy model built to fly on D through F motors!

    The kit also includes vacuform detail parts, balsa nose cone, detailed instructions, and lots of dowels, tubes, and parts to make the Refit a pleasurable build. FOUR full-color decal sheets add the final touch of detail to make the Refit Atlantis the pride of your interstellar fleet!

    Features: Lariat Kevlar™ shock cord mount; laser-cut light-plywood fins, detail parts and centering rings; vacuformed plastic detail parts; high-strength/high-visibility mylar parachute; pre-cut dowels; balsa nose cone; and FOUR full-color waterslide decal sheets. Gracefully slow mid-power flights! (Sirius 2013 Web Ad)
