There has been a great need in model rocketry to build inexpensive scale models of some of our favorite rockets like: Jupiter-C, Saturn 1, Saturn 1B, Saturn V, Deltas, Jupiters (Junos), and shuttles, Soyuz, Lunas and even Ares I.

Might I suggest Dr. Zooch Rockets?

Wes Oleszewski has a great company, and will soon be offering Ares I-X kits to build and display.

I had the pleasure of meeting Wes (Oleszewski) at both the Ares I-X rollout and launch (he was at the press site covering the test flight for the Aero-News Network), and his Ares I-X model, built by him, which he brought to the launch, now has a proud place in the collectSPACE office (pictured below).

I also ordered an unbuilt kit with the intention of applying everything I learned years ago at Space Camp about building model rockets to the hope of launching my own Ares I-X test flight with perhaps the NASA/Houston Rocket Club, which flies rockets from Johnson Space Center.

Whether for display or to fly, I highly recommend Wes' Dr. Zooch kit to anyone who desires to build their own Ares I-X rocket.
