    Greetings,

    Does anyone have any sources for launch towers, either paper model or "real-life" information?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Brad

    Pete Allway has a few drawings of the Saturn V launch tower, at his Saturn Press site.

    You might want to check out this site... http://www.savethelut.org/doug_LUT/index.html

    Page 2 has diagrams that are pretty good. I have been staring at them for a while now trying to figure a good attack plan for when I want to build one (need to get into the spacey mode before that will happen).

    Anyway, should provide what you want.

    not available yet. its in a very raw form, and I have a lot of trouble keeping focused on the project. its really quite boring. I abandoned a girder by girder version, this hako version is easy enough, I just don't know what it is about the tower, I just can't seem to finish it.
