Like my other Project Constellation models, this is based on paper kit scaled to ~1/70 from is original 1/96. I was inspired by the various Apollo LES builds on the internet and an Orion LAS model rocket video on Youtube. It's about 90% complete; the nose cone is off because I have yet to add ballast. The parachutes are from the DR. ZOOCH Box-o-stuff and it flies on 13 mm engines.

Great stuff. And a fantastic way to spam that forum in a very innocent way :)

Very well done!

I do those occasionally, especially when inspired by the muse of actual events!

That's how my Hubble model came to be...

Wow, this program on the Hubble is great. I want my own model of it!
*Goes online*
I need PVC pipe for a model? Where the heck am I going to get PVC pipe? I can make my own out of stuff I have lying around...

And so I did. And made it part of my Global Studies final project. And got an A. Eat that, PVC pipes.
