Sometimes one has to admit that other hobbies exist.....

That Saturn V model was awesome. I can't imagine where you would build it, how you would transport it, or how to safely make and store its engines (which I presume were still the typical solid propellant type used in hobby rockets, just on a much larger scale). I would like to know more about this model!

 

The steam engines are nice, too. Just not quite as impressive.

Allow me to blow your mind...

 

*steam powered model rockets*

 

:lol:

 

Those are some awesome hobbies. Tough call between the model rocket and the steam engines.

Model rockets, baby! You have to get FAA waivers to fly rockets that big...pretty sure you don't need that for a steam engine...:).

 

But, I have to say, those steam powered engines are awesome...true craftsmen there!

I'm just happy that those model rockets fly better than the NK's real ones do.
