Falcon Heavy Pet Bottles Model

About: For me, instructables is more than a website. It is a lifestyle. It gave me the chance to live my dream. Share what I do with the world. I am an embedded Systems Engineer. Love to travel , run , design usefu...

I'm reading this book and it has really been inspiring to see all those achievements done in a very short period of time.

Elon Musk book is a real source of motivation. I couldn't stop thinking about space exploration and rockets since I started reading about it.

So I've decided to make my own model for Falcon Heavy.

This project is so easy. It also is fun and educational for kids.

Here is how I did it.

Please vote for me.

Step 1: Bottles

I used seven PET bottles of 1.5 Liters each.

Step 2: Tools

Step 3: Main Body

Cut one bottle's bottom.

Insert another bottle inside the bottle with bottom removed.

Step 4: Side Boosters

Using Scissors, make a hole in each side booster's bottom.

Also make a hole in the bottom bottle of the main body.

Step 5: Nozzles

Cut three bottles' from top to about 10 centimeters.

You now have three nozzles.

Put each nozzle inside hole you made in the bottles' bottoms.

Step 6: Assembly

Using Scotch Tape, put the three parts (Main body and the two side boosters) together.

Now you have you rocket model ready to Launch.

Let your kids play with you. And have fun.
