Project Mercury Abort Capsule 1/12 Scale
 
6 Attachment(s)
Here's a project I've been working on for a while.

It uses the Atomic City 1/12 scale Mercury capsule, and a home made tower and home made cluster motor utilizing 24mm motors.

The design is rear eject, the motors push the laundry out the bottom of the capsule.

I can post up more photo's if this project is of interest here.

Interesting project. What does that capsule base diameter run...that about 6 inches or so? What will you be constructing the tower from?

Thanks Earl. Yes, base is 6-3/16"

I'm using (3) 3/16" poplar dowels. There's a BT-50H tube, with a C-50 coupler, and (2) stiffener rings made from 1/8" basswood plywood.
