Falcon Heavy drawings
Posted by Don Stauffer on Thursday, February 08, 2018 7:13 AM

I'm considering scratchbuilding a Falcon Heavy. It doesn't look like it would be too hard a project.  However, I did a google image search and didn't find much in the line of scale (dimensioned) drawings.  I suppose since it is not a NASA bird, there will be no drawings at the NASA sites.  I may be able to do it from the drawings I did find- not that great- plus the photos and dimension data I found at wikipedia, but would sure like to find a good dimensioned drawing of the whole stack.  Anyone know where to find something like that?

The space x website has some very good computer renders of the rocket and you could always shoot them an email about getting some drawings.  You never know, they may send you something. 

I would bet that they are already in contract with a model company to create a kit so you may just want to see if a kit shows up soon.

You could always crib from Alfonso X. Moreno's Falcon Heavy card model. His models are always pretty well researched.

Thanks!  That didn't come up in my search.  I have downloaded the file.
