This is pretty cool. It looks like you'd be riding an updated Little Joe II.

Hi,

Yep, you win the prize, the original design concept came straight from the Little Joe and Little Joe II programs. Designed to use off the shelf technology to be safe, reusable, inexpensive, and manned. Originally for the X Prize competition, but continued on for use in the development of civilian space access!

Talking More Bits!

Hi,

I was able to seperate the rocket from the launch tower so I can work on both easier. Here are some new pics!

Hey, I just noticed a flaw in my model in the second pic! Who can see it?
