Introduction: Spaceships Made With Mini Vacuum Cleaners

About: I'm Mario Caicedo Langer, from Colombia, former Navy officer and BSc in Naval Sciences. Right now I'm Technical Director and Technology Lead Teacher at STEM - Engineering for Kids Azerbaijan. Also, I'm artis...

A few years ago, I had two damaged mini vacuum cleaners (like the ones used in cars) in my workshop. So, I created spaceships!

A vacuum cleaner spaceship is easy to made. First, remove the inner parts (motor and electric stuff). You will need the case. For the wings, I used cassette decks from a stereo in one ship and parfurm caps in the other. For the tail, I attached toys pieces. Use the plastic trash you want! Personalize your spaceships! Even I made gaitling guns with deodorant caps and markers tubes. Paint using spray paint.

Now, you have a toy your kids will enjoy!

    cool idea, i think with a bit of thinking way outside your box I may be able to make this idea into a working rocket and fly it at a future launch

    Classic. I always thought they had a weird enough shape to be spaceships! :)
