This has inspired me to try 3D printing. These are parts Scott Mills designed for a BT-60 Saturn 1B. He states they are a work in progress, but thought I'd give them a try.

Ah--that's a nice-looking (with good surface details, too) pair of parts!

Very nice. Two questions: What are you planning to use for the first stage body tubes and how do we contact Scott?

Scott is right here, I read this thread pretty regularly and you can also pm me. I don't respond quickly to pm's on thingiverse but u do eventually. Right now I am about Midway through two huge projects for myself. I am creating toy ships for a couple of 3-3/4 vintage SciFi toy lines. By the way I like what was done for the s1b wraps also. I need to go back and finish that model off, I only left it half done.

I'm going to use a dowel rod as a mandrel and use thin card stock to make the 8 tubes. I'll probably print the black and red lettering on the card stock so I don't have to mask and paint the tubes, just clear coat them.

Scott,

I fully realize you are not done and there are parts to yet create and tweaks to the current parts. And no hurry on you finishing it. For some feedback, the shoulder for the transition is super tight in a BT-60, you have to force it in. I'll sand it down and it will be okay, but you might want to see if you can adjust it a little. The shock cord attachment you incorporated in it is awesome, looks really strong. I'll start a build thread when I get a chance. I'll give you feedback on how it goes. But really super job so far, this is going to make for a great rocket and a really nice size. I saw your Saturn V, looks terrific too, may give that a try. A number of years ago I scratch built a BT-80 based Saturn V with paper wraps and plastruct for the little bits, this 1B will be pretty much the same same scale and a good companion piece. I may build your version 2 of the BT-80 Saturn V as well, I liked the idea in one of the previous posts of printing the wraps in vase mode.

Here is my 3D fleet. Bt-60 Jupiter C/Juno 1, Mercury Redstone, and Gemini Titan. All are printed wraps on label paper with cardstock fins. And, the mighty BT-80 Saturn V. The white wraps are also printed label paper. I learned my lesson about priming PLA first on the Sauturn V, the paint wicked into the layer lines and ran all over, but hopefully it will make a good test platform until I get another one printed. The Redstone and the Titan have flown, both flew nicely on a C6-3.

Scott, those are your designs on the Redstone and Gemini capsules, and version 2 of your Saturn V. Thanks for posting all of these, they really turned out nice.

The Jupiter C was a scaled robnee design, along with the fin unit for the Gemini. If you are following this thread too, thanks go out to you as well.

Here is another project, a 13mm cardstock Interceptor. Parts were posted by tbastion (Thanks!), and I scaled them to fit the bt-5 airframe. Tracing all the decals was a pain, and a few are missing on this pass, but overall I like the way it turned out.

Scott, I take back that the transition is a tight fit in a BT-60 for the Sat 1B, bought a better printer and it fits fine. Also discovered if I upscale the fin unit to 103% the inside diameter
then matches a BT-60 and from there I found the Semroc BT-4 from eRockets seems to work well as the tank tubes, 8 of them fit in the BT-60 and the upscaled fin unit.
