Hi Rick it’s going to be a stand alone build, but in sections so the kids can see what the boosters and modules look like, and I will add a little more detail to the rocket boosters.Ian, I'm looking forward to see this being built. Closest thing I've done to a rocket is a V-1 buzz bomb. Will this be part of a launch site diorama or just a stand alone model? Cheers, Rick H.
Progress isn’t only doing things that nobody ever did before, it’s also realising that some of the things you have been doing aren’t necessary. It's much more efficient for just about every use-case (except speedy arrival) to transport 500 passengers at 1000 km/h than 100 passengers at 2500 km/h, for example. The benefits simply don’t weigh up against the costs. Much the same applies to going to the moon: what is the need to do so? If there is one that doesn’t have a simpler or cheaper earth-bound solution, sure, people will be going back to the moon. Until then, though, there’s nothing to be gained by going there. (In the 60s it was done for one reason only: one-upmanship.)Hard to believe that fifty years ago we put a man on the moon and concorde first flew , the future must have seemed like it was going to be incredible , and here we are now - no ones been to the moon since and supersonic airliners are a thing of the past , progress?
