I'm not entirely sure what planet I am from though...
It is 100% scratchbuilt, but I did cheat a bit. This is supposed to be a 1/72 scale XFLR-6, which is the test rocket (not the actual moon rocket). So the size is correct, but the shape is actually the Moon rocket because I was able to find those dimensions more easily. The test rocket is a little thinner, so I would have had to do all the calculations to cut it into 2D segments myself, and that sounded like just a bit too much work.
Once the straight XFLR fins are on, only the most nit picky fans will know the difference.
I have to admit, after I glued all the segments together... even though I tried to be as precise as possible, the rocket was a bit misshapen and I wasn't sure this was going to work. My wife even asked me why I was building a pickle...
. But after a few rounds of sanding, even if it's not laser perfect, I think it will look good enough,
