I was wondering if anyone knows of anyplace selling the BT-100 or equivolent body tube for cloning a Saturn 1B...i found all the other parts i need..including finding a BT-63..(paper tube from kleenex cottonelle toilet paper perfect match!!).....so any help would be appreciated..thanks mark
Dont quote me on this, but *i think* totally tubular do an equivalent. Worth a look for sure, I think they can be found by a quick search on Google. IIRC the web address isn't very 'catchy', again don't quote me on that.
You mean after I went to JimZ's and looked them up, I still got them wrong? Man, I can't believe that. So you went and verified them before jumping in here to tell me I'm wrong, right? I mean, it'd be really bad form to correct someone and be wrong, right?
BTW: The T-100 is not a coupler for the T-101. It's 3.744" od fits quite loosely into the T101's 3.896" id.
Doug I hate getting fired on when I've done my homework.
Lighten up dude. I said I *think* the T-101 is what you need. As it is I am buying tubes to make the *same* clone kit. I am going to use T-101s with T-100s for couplers. I'm an novice rocket builder (though a long time modeler) as I stated in my first post. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong and the way I stated it leads that open as a possibility.
And for the record, nobody was *firing* on you. You always get your panties in a twist when people just post a thought?
