Some Assembly Required - 1969 Pieces These go OOS often. I'm seriously fighting the urge not to get one for my father, who remembers this era.

Sorry, not the real deal.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

It is - if you can throw hard enough.

Nice. My grandad helped build the real thing. He was a NASA lifer.

It really needs to come with a launch gantry. Now that would be a cool lego model. I'm sure someone has built one.

They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

4 "K" class engines, and 1 "M" class engine. I don't know where you can get those. Homemade perhaps?

I guess it also helps to launch somewhere where "g" is a bit less.

Full disclosure...I built a 6-foot tall Saturn rocket with a first stage powered by eight Estes "D" engines (configured as two attached four-engine stages on the bottom of the Saturn 1st stage) back when I was just out of college. Not only that, but it had an electrical switch attached to one of the first stage engines that triggered and battery-ignited a single "D" engine powering a third stage (the Saturn second stage). Not nearly as exciting as launching a 36 foot tall rocket but it was pretty cool, and scared a number of people with the incredible noise and column of fire and smoke. Not only that, but having the second stage actually have a separate ignition and flight was amazing to watch, especially for folks who didn't know that would happen. I'm reasonably sure that all this was illegal.

Good thread - thanks for the tip on the Lego - I wanted to buy one but missed the previous in-stock opportunities, and neat videos which lead me to this one:

Reminds me that I've got a model rocket I received as a gift sitting in a box around here somewhere.

I currently have the Space Shuttle below waiting in the wings, still sealed. Not sure whether to build it or sell it.
I paid $100 for it. Some sold in the last month or so in the $350-475. range. If I could find a used one
cheap enough I'd sell the sealed one and build the used one for display. I need the Saturn V to go with it.
