Launch Pad

Postby corelki2005 » Sat Aug 18, 2018 1:24 pm

Have decided to do the build diary for the launch pad here as there are a lot of parts so deserves its own section

Also I have to decipher the Japanese instructions

The parts part 1: The sides

For those of you who would like a size comparison, I will do this when it is fully assembled

Part 2: various small parts like linkages etc plus approx. 150 screws of various sizes and the electronics

I would love to have got this to go with my launch bay that I'm building but at the moment I can't afford the £250! Still I'm looking forwards to your build!

a pic for size comparison, for information if I was to lay the sugar cube down and cover the whole of the ramp I would need approx. 1125 or nearly 9 boxes of them :D

a sugar cube is 17x17x10mm in size
