Coming soon: the Orbit Jet from "Rocky Jones, Space Ranger"


Recommended Posts

The first sci-fi TV show I ever remember seeing was "Rocky Jones, Space Ranger," which aired in the mid-1950s and was in many ways a precursor of "Star Trek." I've long wanted a model of the hero ship from that series and have done a lot of research into the design by studying screen snaps from the show and preparing my own scale drawings. That research, as well as the Mechanical Drawing classes I took in high school and college, has paid off. See here, and note the credit in "About the Model." (The drawings shown are not mine, but are temporary placeholders; the multi-color exploded view is my interpretation.)


Thanks to Allen Urey of Fantastic Plastic and Scott Lowther of Aerospace Projects Review for making this happen.
