I wonder how cool it would look to make the "Outlander" with the 'Command module' in either gold or silver foil per the original 'Apollo' command module?
The 'CM' markings that were on the 'Apollo's would, of course, be used. What do You Folks think? Cheers!
I got this off ebay a long time ago. It was missing some parts, Specifically the legs and wood dowels.
I went searching for some card stock today. I found some cardboard that should work. I stuck some clear
label/sticker on it to get a smooth surface.
JimZ's web site supplied the card stock patterns.
I'll put a new xacto blade in and cut them out and see it they will work.
Option B is a very heavy cardboard case, it's a bit too thick though.
Not a newbie per se but more of a Rip Van Winkle...
I recently rediscovered model rockets with my 4 year son, prior to that I built Estes rockets in the late 80s.
What are Micro Maxx motors? I had an Estes Mars Lander model that I built from the paper kit. I don’t remember ready to fly models as a kid.
Are the MXX rockets really back yard compatible? As a kid, I lived near a big farm field, so we just flew them there in the fall or early spring. Are MXX compatible with the Estes launch system?
How tall is the MXX Mars Lander in inches?
Living in suburbia, there isn’t any open fields. Already lost two rockets over 1 month due to limited open space. But there are sizable lakes. Does the Estes launch system launch rockets near zero degrees Fahrenheit?
MMX are mini rockets that use Quest Micro engines. They use a very small diameter launch rod, but are compatible with an Estes launcher. ERockets has a clipon launch rod.
They generally keep below 100ft altitude. My Mars Lander makes it to about 70 ft and generally lands within 25 ft of the pad.
The MMX lander is about 4 inches high and builds into a nice rocket. The legs are fixed.
In the late '80s Estes had a Mini-Mars Lander kit that was about 5-6 inches tall. The legs are fixed.
In the mid 2000's Estes came out with the Mini-Marz Lander, a RTF rocket that was all plastic with movable legs.
It was 5-6 inches tall.
Use LITKO Flight Stands to mount your aircraft, spacecraft, or flying figures. Bases are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and quantities. Flight pegs available in multiple lengths and quantities to match. Peg toppers can be used to mount many craft on one stand. Personalization and custom...
50MM base and either 4 or 6 inch heavyduty rod, a bit of heat and Bob's your uncle, a MMX stand!
It took all of 3 min for each stand.
