This is a model of the classic pulp SciFi rocket, which takes the hero, the sidekick and the romantic interest, to the stars!
For something that fits in a 12"x12" sheet, this thing will tower nearly 15" tall, overawing any primitive aliens you are likely to meet. Well, the shorter ones anyway.
Heavily inspired by Herge's Tintin comics, which are a must read.
This was designed for a 12"x12" square of 1/8" material. The square is a reference for scaling, it is 1"x1".
There should be some play in the slots, so acrylic should work just fine.
The basic structure is based around three spines that hold the circular ribs together by a tongue and groove system, and the legs attach to the lower four rings by the same principle. There are little teardrop feet that slide into slots on the legs, purely ornamental.
I would have numbered the ribs but that would increase cut time and this makes your model a sort of puzzle as well!
