 cool, I went big when i printed it, but it seems to scale
down pretty well

This was printed on a Replicator with no raft and no support and 2 shells and 0% infill.  I shrunk it to half the size that it opened up as in Replicator G to see how it would print, it's about 2 inches tall.  It worked great and took about 1 hour, 9 minutes.  It's about 2 inches tall.  The photo is taken on a slab of old growth long leaf pine from my family's homesteaded farm in northern Louisiana.  I picked up several boards from a falling down shed on the old farm about 7-9 years ago and finally decided to plane them down and make something, a coffee table, I think.  
I think the rocket looks pretty good where it landed!
I am thinking of printing it in some other colors and hanging on the Christmas tree this year.

Congrats!

Instructions

This is intended to be printed big!!!

3 shells 0%infill worked very well for me
(other settings default for replicator)

I didn't use a raft

if you shrink this, the little radiator fins will be fragile
and you will loose the detail

what you do, is up to you
but if you print it as big as you can,
I think you will be very happy with the results
