Build Your Own Battlestar Galactica Viper Rocket!

Estes may have discontinued its wicked Battlestar and Star Trek replica rockets almost 20 years ago, but some clever hobbyists have info on how you can still build one today.

Verna Rockets has a full debrief on its own builds, complete with links to several sites with parts and instructions. You'll find everything you need to build a flying model rocket that looks like a Recon Viper, the U.S.S. Enterprise, even The Black Hole Space Probe from "The Black Hole"

Confession: I always get psyched by rocket kits. Have any pics of your own launches that you'd like to share? [Verna Rockets via Hobby Media]
