Build Your Own Battlestar Galactica Viper Rocket! [Rockets]

Gizmodo said:
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]

Just need to angle those launchers a bit so it looks like the Vipers are coming out of the BSG launch tubes and you're good to go... :D

I think someone launched one across the BBC webcam pan the other day :)
Darn it, I can't find a video clip of what I am thinking of! :banghead:

The BBC clip made me think of several instances of people playing back video tape and realizing that pencil thin objects with some type of wings can be seen flying in the area at high speeds. Great, now I have to go find it...
