Introduction: Matches Powered Cardboard Space Shuttle

Hello everyone,

It has been a long time to come back with back-garden projects. Today, i would like to introduce to you how to build a Space Shuttle Powered by Match heads.

To make this you will need material as below:

- Cardboard

- Template

- 03 Coke cans

- Matches

- 06 Bottle lids

- Glue, Scissors,...

For instruction video you can check the video below:

Step 1: Step 1: Cut Out the Template

You need to download of the model in the following links:

I recommend you should print with color otherwise black and white print is also OK.

I only need space shuttle so I drop all parts of Rocket to save paper.

Now you need cut out the template in line.

Step 2: Assemble

Now use glue to stick all parts together.

Tips: you can use hot glue to enhance the adhensiveness

Step 3: FUEL

Cut out match stick head. You should not let your stick head too much of wood. Only flammable head will perform better


Now, you have finished your shuttle. To let it go, you should find a space away from house. Make sure you have fire extinguish for urgent circumstances.s

Fire it and what it works.

Hope you have fun!
