Won't all of those rivets make it heavy?

The stone age didn't end because of a lack of stones.

I can see it now,
Ray: last rivet set Nick we are all done. Nick?...Nick???....NICK!?!!?     Nick: Hey Ray! I think I'm trapped inside the bulkhead...

Well... there is that old story about the shipyard worker trapped in the Titanic's hull.  So, if you're on the docks at Arrowhead late at night, near Ray's Rocket don't be surprised  if you hear tap... tap... tap...  ;)

I don't know... Rockets are pretty small. The Meteor might seem like a Grand Ballroom inside by comparison. :)

Awesome work as usual guys.

Will Nick be able to walk after getting out of the Meteor?

Inquiring mind.

Will Nick be able to get out is the more important question.

Awesomeness, now you have extra cleco's, I sure miss riveting, such a satisfying endeavor, one by one and on and on and on, cheers to you and Nick

 







Yep, as each rivet gets set they are done and finished!
I have a home for all those cleco’s, the Meteor is in a million pieces and will pretty much get reassembled with cleco’s as everything is rebuilt before it gets riveted together.
