Sea Dragon Project: Rocket Scheme

Posted 01-03-2011 at 08:57 PM by Alnor

After announce on the forum about "Seadragon" and documentation about this project of 60's, I am trying to replicate model of this amazing launcher as accurate, as I can. I think, my book and other model of space ship, will wait until I am not finish this.

This is first day of reconstruction. I am working for many hours now. I use kHED to build this rocket. I had problems with scaling such interesting things, like ballasts and ring on this ballasts. Also, I use a plans pf this rocket.

Now, how looks this rocket at the moment:

There are small objects above that giant nozzle, thats big problem. I can't use loft tools in this scale.So I use a usual pipes, poligon and cloning. But work really hard. Command module and some other modules will be create separately from launcher.

If somebody have ideas about this I ready to hear.

    thank you! I don't want to make this add-on, because of time budget, but seeing it getting done is sure interesting.

    But I can offer assistance for any DLL.

    Yes, codding - its not my profession. I am making models, not codding them. So, thank you. It will be grateful .

    Besides, work goes fast - already done fuel tank for 1st stage, now making hull and seeking for textures:

    Somebody have good textures?

    Well, I don't think I can code a DLL in that time, but in case anybody has questions about the details, I can help. I wanted to make a test project for such expandable nozzles as used on the Sea Dragon, but that is still subject to limited time... Space Shuttle Ultra is more important.

    Oh, well I am understand. In any case, thanks for support. This is my second big project, first now too old and rude, so it needs remaster . But first: this rocket.
    Did not know, that somebody else on this forum interested for such BIG things.

    This is going to be epic. As for bigness, imagine putting a Sea Dragon in an Orbiter multiplayer scenario. It'll be really fun
