I’ve just finished up “The Satellite”, the original 1930’s design for the Buck Rogers Rocket. References were a bit contradictory, so I would not be surprised if you find some that look a bit different.
Here are some of the more unusual features:
- It’s a tractor rocket. By which I mean the rockets are at the front and it is pulled by them, rather than pushed.
- It has four retro rocket tubes at the front.
- It lands by balancing on it’s tail! Not very stable…
- It had four weapons blisters with slots down the side.
