The 3D modeling guys have it easy. They do not need to physically fabricate anything and can play with their structures all day.

Thanks for that link. I was able to import his file into some 3D software and I was able to make some pics based on Mr. Basset's model.

Default MLET anyone

Anyone have a spare Mecury Launch Escape Tower for my Estes MR-7.
I know I may end up making one but it would be great to get one and glue it on.

What might be nice is to get his wireframe and cadge some time on a rapid prototyping table. You might not get the tower but you could get a capsule.
