Largest Model Rocket In History Launch Appears To Have Been A Success

Last Sunday we wrote about Steve Eves’ 36-foot tall Saturn V model rocket that he hoped would put him in the record books for being the largest model rocket in history. Well if you recall, the launch for this behemoth was scheduled for April 25, aka yesterday, and based on these photos that Gizmodo reader Ben submitted to their site, the launch looks like it was a complete success.

There’s even a video of the launch that I’ve included after the jump, and I hate to sound cynical, but it doesn’t actually look much more exciting than the Estes model rockets I used to launch as a kid. But I’m sure experiencing the launch in person would have been an impressive experience.
