PML Lunar Express Build, Finished

This was different! The piston ejection system was a change and I could certainly use the experience doing epoxy fillets.
It was interesting making the vinyl graphics work on a four finned model. The original Futurama rocket had three fins.
I was most impressed by the quality of the kit components. Public Missiles did a great job on this one!


  1. Great build Chris!

    I'm sure your client will be very pleased!

  2. Wow! That is awesome! An update if/when your client flies this would be great.

  3. Wow that came out *amazing*. Great job on the build and great job by Mark with the vinyl.

    I want one!

  4. Thanks guys! While I don't usually like working with something this big, it was very well engineered with great instructions.

  5. Woo! Was that red stripe up the side a decal, or paint? It looks like a tricky mask.

    Nice work!

    1. Hi Daniel,
      The red strip was trim Monokote supplied by the client. The sent piece wasn't quite long enough so it had to be carefully pieced together.
