    That looks great, Leo. I'm just about finished with the Tsyklon-4. Just finishing up stage 3, so I'm ready for the launch pad. :) Hopefully, I'll have it finished tonight or tomorrow. I'll build the Rockot next. Thanks again for all the great models.

    Sweet! I can't wait for it. I need to build more Russian rockets. They just seem so much cooler than US rockets for some reason.

    I love spacecraft , spaceships , space rocket...everything what is connected with space exploration...but this is just the horn :-D

    Of course it doesn´t change the fact , that this is very nice construct and build real-space model:wave7:

    I have read about and seen some pictures (see attachment) that the Rockot is launched from a 'launch container'. Is that true? If yes, wouldn´t this be a nice add-on. Do you plan this Leo?

    Your Rockot is again a very nice and very well turned out model. I like it very much and will build it certainly soon. :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Gerd!

    Yes, indeed the Rockot is launched from a 'launch container'.
    Thank you for the good idea!

    By the way, Rockot launched NASA`s GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) satellites on 17th March 2002 from Plesetsk Cosmodrome.

    I´ve read about the GRACE and I believe , that it is very important project , but my quote was about the shape of the rockot :) It is very nice how it is simple :) I know - the intercontinental rockets were always simple-shaped like that :) R7 is simply classic in all modifications :inw:

    Thank you Leo. I'm printing it now. :)

    Will you be releasing the launch platform for the Tsyklon? I think that's what you have on your web page between the Tsyklon-4 and ROCKOT?

    Yes, I'll be releasing the platform. But at first I'll finish drawings and have to build my own...

    I finished your Rockot model and again everything fits very well. I could not find any error. The only thing I modified was the use of a second inner strip for the grey interstage (c6) to get a tougher fixation of stage C (Breeze KM). But this might be dependent from paper thickness.

    Great job! I'm almost finished building mine. I have been diverted to another project but when it's finished I'll finish the Rockot - another great model from Leo.
