    Nice work Montaro. Has anyone else built and flown this model yet? Just wondering, considering what's going on at the moment.

    Finally got to fly my Falcon 9...I was going to try to fly it while Dragon was in orbit, but our May launch was cancelled due to high winds...nice flight on a B6-4

    Welcome to the SCALE (SpaceX) Falcon 9 Gallery on TRF.

    This gallery showcases the SpaceX Falcon 9 and those rockets derived from it. Particularly appropriate in this thread are the following:


    SpaceX: Falcon 9:



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



    Falcon 9 is a rocket-powered spaceflight launch system designed and manufactured by SpaceX, headquartered in Hawthorne, California. Both stages of its two-stage-to-orbit vehicle use liquid oxygen (LOX) and rocket-grade kerosene (RP-1) propellants. The Falcon 9 can lift payloads of 10,450 kilograms (23,000 lb) to low Earth orbit, and 4,450 kilograms (9,800 lb) to geostationary transfer orbit, which places the Falcon 9 design in the medium-lift range of launch systems.

    The first Falcon 9 flight was launched, after several delays, from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on June 4, 2010, at 2:45 pm EDT (19:45 UTC) with a successful orbital insertion.

    The second launch of the Falcon 9, and the first of the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft atop it, occurred at 10:43 EST (15:43 UTC) on December 8, 2010, from Cape Canaveral. The Dragon spacecraft completed two orbits, then splashed down in the Pacific Ocean.

    The Falcon 9 and Dragon combination won a Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) contract from NASA to resupply the International Space Station under the Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) program.

    SpaceX Falcon 9 and Dragon Basic Information.

    [​IMG] SpaceX

    MODEL NAME: Falcon 9 and Dragon Also known as: Falcon 9

    NUMBER:

    Introduced: 2011
    Final Year:
    Designer:

    Type: Scale
    Motor Mount: 1x18mm
    Recovery: Parachute
    Stages: 1
    Length: 22.8"
    Diameter:
    Span:
    Weight:

    Mfg. Description: On December 8, 2010, SpaceX became the first commercial company in history to launch, fly, and recover a spacecraft from Earth orbit. The Falcon 9 rocket delivered the Dragon spacecraft to orbit where it circled the Earth at speeds greater than 7,600 meters per second (17,000 miles per hour). After nearly two orbits, Dragon fired its thrusters to begin reentry and splashed down in the Pacific Ocean 3 hours, 19 minutes and 52 seconds after liftoff. Now you can build and fly your own 1:88 scale model of SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket with the Dragon spacecraft. With molded nose and tail, full-color pre-printed body tube, and full color sticker for nose, the impressive finished model stands a big 58 cm (22.8 in) tall. No painting required! The kit includes molded transparent fins for flight, which can be removed for display. Dual parachutes return the Falcon 9 and Dragon spacecraft separately to Earth. REQUIRED FOR ASSEMBLY (not included): Scissors, adhesive tape, white glue, epoxy glue (5-minute type), coffee stirrers or similar to mix and apply epoxy, sheet of printer paper (either A4 or 8.5 x 11 in). REQUIRED FOR FLIGHT (not included): Model rocket engines (recommended A8-3, B6-4, C6-5), engine igniters, flame proof recovery wadding, launch system. Designed by SpaceX, and tooled and manufactured in California. Build and fly your own model of America's newest private space transportation system - from SpaceX! --- The model's launch lug is 1/8" diameter and the model is designed for standard A B and C engines, so these are good matches for this rocket.

    Thanks for sharing, I might following your landing leg idea, it would be really cool in a slightly larger size.

    Hehe that would be cool, painfully difficult to fit in and assemble though. If I redid it with a completely 3D printed capsule I think I could pull that off. Just getting into printing parts now and it makes a lot of really difficult small pieces easy.
