"Falcon Heavy is a reusable super heavy-lift launch vehicle being designed and manufactured by SpaceX. The Falcon Heavy (previously known as the Falcon 9 Heavy) is a variant of the Falcon 9 launch vehicle and will consist of a strengthened Falcon 9 rocket core with two additional Falcon 9 first stages as strap-on boosters.[8] This will increase the low Earth orbit (LEO) maximum payload to 63,800 kilograms (140,700 lb), compared to 22,800 kilograms (50,300 lb) for a Falcon 9 full thrust. The Falcon Heavy will only be able to deliver this mass when it is fully expended, the maximum mass to GTO with first stage and side booster recovery is 8000 kilograms (17,637 lb)[9]. Falcon Heavy was designed from the outset to carry humans into space and would enable crewed missions to the Moon or Mars."

Hey everyone. It's been a while since I lasted posted, and I'm really sorry. But as I'm sure you all know, life takes a higher priority, and I simply didn't have the time to put into Minecraft that I do now. I'll try to be more consistent with posting, but try not to expect more then 3 projects a week, maximum.

Having watched lots of SpaceX's live-streamed launches, I found myself really, really intrigued at the idea of building one of these. And because the Falcon Heavy itself hasn't even been launched yet (only the Falcon 9 has) I thought Maybe I can beat SpaceX to the punch, and so this project was founded. I started off by using SpriteCraft to get a 2D blueprint for the Falcon, which I then adapted and scaled down to what I needed. I then gradually built upon that base, until it became what it is now. It is quite squarish, but that's a problem with my scaling techniques. Maybe I should work on those.

I'm currently working on a Falcon 9 Standalone, which is technically just splitting the Heavy into 3 and taking one of those halves. But instead of that, I'm going to build from the ground up a completely separate design, which should turn out much, much better. Updates on that soon.

The schematic will be uploaded soon, I'm just working on optimizing it and fixing a few issues with it. Nothing that shouldn't take more then a few days.

As always, a diamond is really appreciated, but is not necessary. Most importantly is that you all enjoy this project, and if you do, I'd love to hear some of your feedback! I try to respond to as many comments as possible, so have at it! If you liked this project, subscribing will help you keep up-to-date on my latest projects. Thanks again!

But does it fly? or explode. Thumbs down. Lol jk looks real good, love the editing too. Quick pretend your like 8 years old and send a letter with an image of this to Elon Musk and ask if he can sign it.
