Hi everyone My current build experience is mostly Estes kits for low power and PML for mid/high, so I have been looking for a challenge to push my building/ rocketry to the next level. So, whilst watching a Soyuz launch a few months back I thought how could this be done? A few well spent hours of YouTube “research” later and I came across this masterpiece. And so, spurred on by a brother with access to laser cutting/3D printing project Soyuz was born. The aim is to build a 1/50 scale Soyuz, using PieroAcme’s fantastic model as a guide. New challenges to be faced will be clustering, staging, and strap on boosters (nothing to hard then he jokes) as well as scale building/ detailing. So as i said this project has been on the go in my head for a few months with the first stages of the build started this morning so i will fill you in on the jump from conception to today Scale reference was found here on the rtf mostly, with the majority of measurements taken from this blueprint (although I now have a small library of Soyuz/Vostoc plans/diagrams). Staging/ booster separation will be attempted using PieroAcme’s method which is better demonstrated by a link in the comments of his video, showing some photos of his build. (unfortunately I just checked this link and it has died in the last couple days, however I have a copy of all of the images for reference fortunately).
