Rocketship Mark V is complete. I put a coat of BLO on it and when that is dry I will put a low gloss poly. Onto Mark VI

Nice – I like the tripod fins and overall design. I have to get my camera out and share a few pics with you. Mine are a bit worse for wear, as the boys played pretty hard with them over the years.

Wow, I thought they were 6ft tall from the first photo, impressive nonetheless!

Nice work! Have you thought about turning models like this out of balsa wood and converting them to actually be launched via Estes rocket motors?

Another great looking rocket ship!

By the way, Smurfs are OK, but I’d like to see Marvin Martian pose with the Mark VI!

Thanks for all the great comments. Some fellas on another forum happen to mention something about Thunderbirds are a GO. That just opened up a whole other world of rocketships.

@Mean_Dean That is a great idea. I just hired Marvin. He should be here by Monday!

@Ralbuck. I have the Steam Engine posted under my projects but here is another shot.

If you want to see more hi res photos of the train I have just uploaded it to my Flickr page.

You’re onto something pretty cool with these rockets… Very original.

Have your say...
