in the style of a Chesley Bonestell 50s style scientific design moon rocket
this thing is far too big to print in one piece - over 200 mm tall! -
(although if anyone wants the original file let me know )
I cut the rocket into 4 sections with several alternate pieces for the second and third sections. all the sections are hollow,(hopefully saving a lot of time and plastic ). section 1 is
designed to accommodate 4-5mm LEDs with hollows leading down one of the wing struts to allow for wiring power.
this is intended to be the first in a series of Bonestell / von Braun style ships. Assuming I don't burn out on the idea first ( this took a good 7 + hours to make-and it's the one that's fairly simple! )
Any comments greatly appreciated please please??
section 1-( 28 mmH x 60mmW )
section 2-(85 mm)-with and without the airlock
section 3-(75 mm)-blank, blank with cargo door,with Windows, with Windows and cargo door
section 4-(24mm)-nosecone same on all
print one each of sections 1, 2, 3 and 4 and glue together
remembering to run the wire and LEDs first if you intend to light it
you may need to clean up the holes first to get the LEDs to fit
/// May 12-added a launch 'flames' base which is hollow and about 1 mm thick throughout ///
if you use the section3 with the cargo door you might find it fun to install a floor from a thin piece of plastic stock and make a little cargo room and perhaps a little tiny Crane which is what I'm planning to do when I finally get around to printing this thing.
