‘can I copy your homework?’ -The_Black_Badger
‘yeah just change it up a bit so it doesn’t look obvious you copied’ -SnacklessKerbal
‘ok’ -The_Black_Badger


SnacklessKerbal saw my Juneau rocket that I recently uploaded, and decided to make a 5-meter rocket inspired by it.

I loved the look of his rocket, so I carbon-copied his design.

Then I made some custom fins out of aileron pieces, and he copied those.

So here’s we ended up, me with my Olympus rocket, and him with his Carina. Both incredibly capable 5-meter Ultra-Heavy lifters.

The best part is that both rockets have become their own distinct vehicles, each with finishing touches from us both that make them unique.

I had an absolute blast with this build, with making the infographic, and with the back-and-forth plagiarism, and I hope you all will enjoy it too.

Note: The nose fairing separation will make the rocket lag until they have disappeared from physics range. I think this is because the nose cone is made up of 13 individual angles to get a smooth curve.

Bearing the internal designation SK-120, the Olympus is an ultra-heavy lift rocket, capable of 120 tonnes to a 100km symmetrical orbit.
The fairing is a flat-rate shipping container. If it fits, it ships to low Kerbin orbit.
Special thanks to Snackless Kerbal.

A totally OSHA-Approved flight with the Juneau to show relative sizes. Warranty void if you imitate this flight profile.
