The zone between Fins 1 and 4 is complete.  So far I've placed about 1,400 Rivets

That's exquisite.

Are you planning on keeping the parts separate in case they need to be moved?

Since it's likely for be about 7' tall and all.

 

 

Yes.  All sections will come apart.  The Capsule will be lit.

Holy moly, that is a great start to one incredible project!

Next up on your list should be... a Saturn V.  Stick out tongue

Looks great.  I will be following this thread closely. Real space is one of the genre that I do scratch occasionally.

I've been planning this for some time and started on her the end of January.  Launch Table is complete, and the Tail Unit is ready for the thousands of rivets.

 

I plan on building the Atomic City Mercury Capsule to sit on top dressed as Gus Grissom's Liberety Bell 7.
