Introduction: NASA Space Shuttle Model

hello everyone! this is a home made NASA space shuttle model. its made from household material like tissue papers, cardboard polystyrene etc.

Step 1: Gathering the Materials

You'll need the following material to make this model-

1. Polystyrene cubes

2. A lot of tissues

3. Cardboard/MDF board

4. Any cardboard hollow cylinder

5. White glue

6. Paints and brushes

7. Sand paper

Step 2: SHAPING THE PARTS AND ATTACHING THE WINGS

to make the fuselage of the shuttle you'll need to shape out the polystyrene in shape of the shuttle with a sandpaper .now this could be a little tough.the second thing is to make the wings and then attach them to the body with glue.

similarly for the bigger rocket you can use and cylinder cardboard and make the top with polystyrene shaped in a cone.

for the two thin rockets you' can use pvc pipes.

also you need to stick to straps at the bottom of the shuttle so that later the shuttle and rockets can be assembled together to the big rocket.

Step 3: ASSEMBLING AND DETAILING

finally assemble all the parts together using white glue. then put a coating of glue and tissue paper on every part of the shuttle and the rockets to make it firm and give a texture.

after it has dried paint it and for detailing use NASA stickers and you can make fine borders and windows according to your choice.
