Neil and his 20 ft tall
rocket. 20 Ft Tall, 11.5 Inches
Wide Motors to be used at LDRS 31 for this

3 Outboard Aerotech/Kosdon K750's White Lightning Recovery - 8 ft Drogue & an Amazing Bright Orange Rocketman 30 Ft MAIN Parachute with nose cone on
a separate 14 ft chute.
100 ft separates booster from sustainer
Jeff Taylor of LOKI Research made all the rocket motors.
Lift off on a Central LOKI N4000 Spitfire and 3 LOKI K830 Spitfires.
Leaning into the wind.
Photographed below on November 8, 2008 are the parts from PML.
The (4) 4ft - 11.5 inch wide airframes were fiberglassed.
The 3 huge fins were also fiberglassed.
The inside of the 4 ft. nose cone was fiberglassed.
NOTE: This is NOT the original kit from The Rocketman - I added in many more options:
Central 98 MM Motor Tube and 3 outboard 54 MM Motor Tubes with custom cut centering rings.
4 Inches of Airframe cut off of the booster section to be attached to the altimeter bay.
And, I added in additional couplers for added strength and thickness to parts of the airframe.
Below - putting parts in place for test fitting prior to using epoxy.
Over 4.5 ft tall there is a central 98mm motor tube and 3 outboard 54mm motor tubes.
Above - test fitting motor tube components.
Fins attached and fiberglassed to motor mount - see below: Astro (from
Centuri - 17 inches tall) used as size reference.
For size reference, you see the ASTRO from Century on top, a Estes Saturn V on the Table in the back,
and, by the way, the table behind the DINOSAURS ROCK-et EXTREME is 6 ft wide. From here, I am going to attache the
second rail button to the aft of the rocket (two more go on the next section). Then, some internal fillets for the
fin/airframe. And then, which I will photograph later - mega foaming the interior to seal everything up.
The interior of the airframe you see above will be filled with Mega Foam.
Below is the 4 ft section that goes above the aft section you see above.
Looking inside the ariframe below you see a strip of wood and a coupler.
This unit attaches two (2) more unistrut rail guides.
Below you can get an idea again of the size of this rocket.
Note the two standard doors in the background.
Here you see the first 2 sections "screwed together" with the 4 Unistrut Rail guides.

I just wanted to give you a shout out for another awesome visit. The exhibit
you set up is more than we could have expected. I am in awe of how you can keep the attention of 40 three, four and
five year old children. You have a wonderful balance of humor and excitement while keeping the children engaged.
They were focused on your every word.
Over my 30 years in daycare we visited a local Museum to celebrate dinosaur month. With the rising costs of buses
and admission it was an easy transition to have the museum brought to us. You really fortified our Dinosaur unit of
study and enriched our program.
The children loved the fossil dig and treasures. Our junior paleontologist found shark teeth, fossils, shells and
gem stones and were thrilled to be able to take them home. The geode breaking with the beautiful crystals kept
their interest and fascinated them.
This is the 3rd year we have had the pleasure of having you attend our center and I can't wait to book next years
