Intro: Mini Spaceship!
This is my attempt at freestyling a cardboard spaceship! Enjoy! Sorry, this is my first instructable, so bear with me please! Also, I made mine in a rush, so it is a bit (not a bit---really) sloppy. You can add thrusters if you really want to.
Step 1: Materials
You will need:
Scissors or anything else to cut cardboard with
An open mind set on the goal!!
Step 2: The Top
Cut out a piece of cardboard no smaller than an altoid tin.
Step 3: Most of the Spaceship
Cut out pieces if cardboard in that same shape and make it a little bigger each time (2-4 pieces like that) then get smaller (1 piece). Make a piece the same size as the biggest piece.
Step 4: Glue
Take all of your pieces and glue them all together (small middle middle big medium small)
Step 5: Fins
Cut out two fins and glue them together. Glue them to the back of the base. Now cut out two more fins and glue them to the sides.
Step 6: The Stand
Alright, cut out a rectangular piece of cardboard the length and width of the base. Now take a piece of cardboard the width of the base and glue it to the back of the rectangle. Glue a thin piece of cardboard to the rectangle at an angle. Glue all that to a piece of cardboard. Add supports if needed. Blast off!!!
