Here's what I got...

Decided to show it all off in the man cave, since I just finished the Grappa bottle and the two rockets. Can you tell which rocket is the Hero, and which is the Stunt?

The rockets are very lightly modified Estes kits. There are a couple threads out there with all the details.

Thanks Alan, and thanks for your contribution on the wine bottle!

The rockets were pretty easy. I made one as a "Hero" display rocket by replacing the cradboard tube with PVC and filling it with resin for weight, adding plastic fins instead of the balsa wood, and overall taking care and time with it.

The other I built "out of the box", following the concept that IF they used an actual flying rocket on set, it would have been done that way. So it has the original cardboard tube, balsa fins, and was done in and overall "quick and dirty" manner. Very light weight.

The baby is cool... Is it screenused or some kind of replica?!?

The fifth element collection is great, too... Can someone push me in the right direction what bottle I can use?!?

Alot of wine bottles have that shape.

I went with Rose D'Anjou. Delicious, and not at all expensive, so you can have fun emptying it too :lol :thumbsup
