Sculptor Randy Regier, who makes toys limited to one unit, made a flying model kit of the "Fisher Fire Fly" spaceship.
In a continuing effort to explore the potential and parameters of my American Dream Technical Institute I have added another piece to the Institute's collection. This is a flying model kit of the ADTI's full size "Fisher Fire Fly" spaceship. It is in the original box, and includes a steel launching pad with telescopic guide rod. Later this year this piece will be launched using an Estes D-12-7 model rocket engine. Results are expected to mirror the performance of the full size Fire Fly. Dimensions 14" x 8" x 8"See more photos of this cool model rocket after the jump.
