For a gift I was sent the Occre rocket kit. I will be attempting to build.
My questions.
The kit is 1/24th
Has anyone built this kit and how did it turn out.
Can I put power to the build if so how do you control the speed and how would it be powered.
Rick

Ah, I was confused buy the naming convention.  As soon as I saw the picture I realized that it is Stephenson's Rocket (kit made by OcCre).

If it is a plastic (Or other non-metallic material) model kit, it will not pick up electricity trough the wheels. They would either need metal tires made or have the model battery powered.

I'm partway through OcCre's San Francisco cable car model.  Nice kit, great white metal castings.  Much of it is wood, so it's as lot like building a ship model versus a plastic model or railroad model. 

Only reason I ran across it was trying to figure out what they used in The Good Place for the trolley problem episode. 


Looking forward to watching your build.

Is it bad that my first thought is to come up with a solution similar to what Sam from Cheers did?..
I wanted a few GN cars to fill out my 10 car BN passenger train.
.. I ended up with 21 Empire Builder cars.
