This is another Rocketship I made 2 years ago for a friend of mine who lives in Kent, England. He had mentioned how much he liked my other ones and is a woodworker so I decided I would make him one and give at as a Xmas present. Last picture is him at his house and a shop helper I sent along to tend to the Rocketship.

Love your rocketships. I made one a couple years back but it doesn’t hold a candle to yours.

Love your rockets!!!
I keep saying I want to build one but just can’t seem to quit building models long enough to get er done.
Will be thrilled to see what you come up with next.
