i was mad enough to build 3. it was going to be turned into a kit and sold through comet miniatures. it was advertised for a while but was too expensive. when you work out the kit parts needed, the resin for the rocket, it was going to come with a video to aid construction, a small profit for me and then add Tony's mark up and VAT, loadsa money. he sais there was interest from various celeb collectors so like a mug i kept building ,but the interest never turned into sales. so now when someone asks me for a model ,it's a nice deposit up front first.
cheers Paul

I thought I add to this thread. I have made a SunProbe and call it my '$5, or 3 day SunProbe'. I've always loved this design and when my son finally caught up with me and started watching the show and wanting toys or models of all the cool hardware in the show I just had to oblige. The model is about 16' tall. The most costly part was the nose cone - purchased from a bag of miscellaneous 'flying rocket' parts. The main hull is a combination of converted Christmas wrapping paper tubes (giant toilet roll basically). The rockets around the base are straws of different widths purchased at a 'dollar store'. The rest of it is cardboard and stuff from around the house and the modeling odds and ends box - including some plastic cement tops and some rather nice brass tubing.

Matte that was an excellent job, I also saw your crablogger there.

Do you still have it and how big did it measure?

Thanks. I have started a thread re the Crablogger. Yes I still have it and it's just under 2 feet long, which sounds big, but it's less than 6" tall.

The Nike Hercules has recently been re-released by Revell and you should be able to pick one up for around a tenner in most model shops.

That is very nice.
And at 16' tall, you must have a big workshop to keep it in!





(yes I do realise that it was a typo...!)

..and I forgot to mention the coolest part. The nose cone is attached with magnets, so it can dock and undock seamlessly.
