About this creation
This model was inspired by set 3831, (Rocket Ride, from the 2008 Spongebob line) albeit with a pointier nose cone, gray color scheme, and a more organized inside with NO stickers! The model now has FIVE levels a enlarged engine section with longer tail fins and four more engines, along with a crew of two humans and a robot helper.



The rocket by itself.



The new engine section features four tail fins and five engines. the original rocket only had one engine, and that wasn't very realistic, so I added four more like on the Saturn V rocket.



The rocket features an opening section to get at the interior which now only consists of the cockpit. The model was too weak in real life when the whole thing opened up, so I was forced to solidify every section to keep it from falling apart.



The robot is inspired by the robot customer in the 2007 set number 4981 (another Spongebob set called The Chum Bucket), while the astronauts were inspired by the Sandy Cheeks mini-figure in set 3831.

The new rocket engines and enlarged lower sections should be built soon, probably early next month.

Quoting Scott Bourgeois Reminds me of the Flash Gordon rocket from the 1950's TV show. Cool "retro" rocket. ;)
Thank you Scott!
