Build, launch and land your own brick-built Falcon 9 Block 5 model

Standing 64 cm (25 in) tall, the Falcon 9 model is built at 1:110 scale, the same scale as the LEGO® Saturn V set! It's designed to be very detailed and scale-accurate in everything from the exterior dimensions to details, while keeping the piece price relatively affordable. The default model includes both the payload fairing and Crew Dragon capsule and consists of 506 pieces that cost around $55 and are bought separately (see the "How to buy the bricks" section below).

The model features:

  • Accurate staging, with a separatable first and second stage.
  • Crew Dragon capsule, with its separable trunk and an included removable heat shield. Or choose...
  • ...the standard payload fairing, which can house a payload of your choice inside (like the X-37B OTV).
  • Deployable grid fins and landing legs, with deployment arms that can be added to display the landed first stage.
  • A sooty flight-proven variant. See the "Variants" tab below for more info.
  • A sturdy construction with axles and bars as internal supports allowing for easy handling and light play.

The digital building instructions you'll receive with your purchase are high-quality and easy to follow, even for less experienced builders.

Learn more about the Falcon 9

Falcon 9 has been the most launched rocket in the world for the past few years (a record 60 launches in 2022) and is so far the only orbital-class rocket in the world with the ability to propulsively land and reuse the first stage. Since its first flight in 2010 Falcon 9 has gone through various upgrades, with Block 5 being the latest and currently flying iteration. It has flown over 260 times with only two failures and has landed 195 out of 200 attempts so far (97.5%). Falcon 9 mostly launches government and commercial satellites, including the company's own Starlink internet satellites, as well as both cargo and crew to the ISS.

Thank you for checking out my Falcon 9 model and if you are considering buying the instructions I am especially grateful to you for supporting my work and directly enabling me to continue producing more designs in the future!

Variants

This product comes in four different variants, which you'll all have access to with the single purchase. Use these explanations to determine which instructions to use and parts you need to buy to build your desired variant:

1. Default Falcon 9 [506 pcs] - builds the clean Falcon 9 model with both the fairing and Crew Dragon included.

2. Falcon 9 with only Crew Dragon [358 pcs] - builds the clean Falcon 9 with only Crew Dragon (inspired by Muscovite Sandwich's Crew Dragon) and no payload fairing.

3. Falcon 9 with flight-proven first stage [559 pcs] - builds a flight-proven Falcon 9 with a sooty first stage (inspired by TheBrickFrontier's Falcon 9 Sooty Booster) and reused fairing, instead of the clean counterparts in the default inventory.

4. Only flight-proven first stage [260 pcs] - builds only the flight-proven first stage to be displayed separately.

How to buy the pieces

I recommend buying the bricks required for the model from Bricklink.com, which is the largest online marketplace for LEGO® parts sellers.

There are other alternatives, like the official LEGO® Pick a Brick site, but they rarely have all the required pieces and it's often more expensive there.

The process to buy from Bricklink is easier than it seems, and is explained thoroughly in this step-by-step guide to help you:

  1. After buying the product, you need to download the folder named "Part lists" and unzip it.
  2. Choose the part list(s) you want to buy using the guide in the "Variants" tab below.
  3. Next go to Bricklink.com and log in or create an account (it's very easy to set up).
  4. Click on the "Want" tab in the top right corner and "Create New List".
  5. Once you've done that, click on the upload button and drag and drop the part list you want to include in the order. Then click the blue "Proceed to verify items" button.
    Repeat step 5 for each part list you want to order.
  6. [Optional step if you only want new pieces] Select all the pieces and change their "Condition" to "New" (needs to be repeated for each page). Note that this will lead to a higher price and the risk of some parts being unavailable. The default option gives you a price around the estimate and will include both new and used bricks.
  7. Next click the green "Buy All" button and then adjust the settings to your preference. For lower shipping costs, I recommend beginning by choosing your region/country first and only change it if the pieces aren't available there.
  8. Once that's done, click the blue "Auto-select" button, uncheck the box in the pop-up and click "Start".
  9. This will give you a list of stores whose orders together will include all of the pieces in your wanted list. Confirm that all the pieces are included by clicking the "Wanted Items" tab to the left and control that there aren't any pieces left there.
  10. If you are happy with the selection and price, click "Create carts", followed by "Checkout" for each individual store and buy the pieces!
    (If you are not happy with the price or if you're missing any pieces, you can click "Remove All" and redo the auto-selection with different settings)

If you're having any issues with ordering your bricks, don't hesitate to send us a message through the "Contact us" tab in the menu and we'll do out best to help!

Second build

Amazing build.
Loved the instructions, loved the build and honestly, everything went perfect, and it was easy to build it.
Next one will be Starship 28 :)
Thank you for your hard work in creating these models :)

Well Made and easy to follow

This was my first Lego MOC build. Compared to other official Lego space sets, I found the instructions to be on par. Made a few mistakes, but they were easy to spot and correct.

Overall very happy. The different display options are really nice (dragon vs. fairing and landing legs). Looks as accurate as you can get with this scale.

Falcon 9 MOC: A Stunning Display of Detail

This MOC perfectly recreates the Falcon 9 and looks amazing on display!

Everything is recreated with amazing detail, including the 9 Merlin engines, landing legs, raceway up the rocket, the black interstage, and the detailed second stage. You have the option to build either a fairing to hold a payload or a Crew Dragon capsule. I chose to build the Crew Dragon capsule, which also separates from the trunk, displaying even more great detail. Additionally, I built a fairing to display on the side with a Starlink payload ready for deployment.

I also purchased pieces to display a landed booster alongside my Falcon 9. The colors chosen perfectly recreate the sooty reentry look, and the pieces at the bottom recreate the white area only exposed after the legs deploy.

These were pretty straightforward builds that were very enjoyable, with no issues. The use of great techniques helps with stability, making the rocket easy to move around. Overall, it's a fantastic set!

Almost like real

A truly beautiful and detailed model of the current workhorse of US space travel!

Perhaps the graphics in the construction instructions could be made a little clearer, as it happened to me that I mixed up a few parts in one or two places. Otherwise there is nothing to complain about here from my side!
