    Ares V Block II Finished

    This is a follow on to the Ares V I crashed last week. It is heavily modified from the paper kit by Ton Noteboom, downsized to 1:192 scale. The wraps are from the Dr. Zooch Box-O-stuff. The C6-3 on the last flight seemed a bit weak though, I either may make it so that I can put engines in the SRB's like on the last Ares V, cluster an 18mm with 2 or 3 13mms (most like A10-Pt's) , or both.
    Progress as of now:
