    I made my own waterslide decals, and based on the pics I've seen, I used the wrong source pic, so I've got some reprinting to do. At least I haven't clearcoated it yet.

    Welcome to the SCALE (X-Prize) Thunderstar Gallery on TRF.

    This gallery showcases the SCALE (X-Prize) Thunderstar from Starchaser Industries and those rockets derived from it. Particularly appropriate in this thread are the following:


    Estes: Thunderstar: #2192



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



    Thunderstar - Three Man Capsule

    The THUNDERSTAR capsule is being developed to carry a 3-person crew on a sub-orbital flight and return them safely back to Earth. The design of the THUNDERSTAR capsule leverages the experienced gained from the STARCHASER NOVA and NOVA II one-man capsules.

    The capsule is designed to interface with the STARCHASER 5 Reusable Launch Vehicle and reach an altitude of between 100 and 120km.

    The capsule will also feature a Launch Escape System that will pull the capsule and it's crew to safety in the event of an emergency, either on the pad prior to launch or at any stage during the powered ascent phase.

    Starchaser 5 - Re-usable Launch Vehicle

    The STARCHASER 5 booster is being developed to propel a 1.5 tonne payload to an altitude in excess of 100km. The booster will incorporate the two propellant tanks, (Liquid Oxygen and Kerosene) with a third high pressure tank which will hold the inert gas used to push (feed) the propellant to the engines.

    The STARCHASER 5 booster is designed to be 100% reusable and will be recovered by parachute with the addition on an impact attenuation system.
