Prototype of the scale, wooden model of the Raygun Gothic Rocket

So one of the ideas I had while building the Rocket Sam papercraft model was to build some scale models of the Raygun Gothic Rocket that everyone would be able to build.

I’m doing the first in wood, and I just got done putting together a prototype.  This was laser cut out of 1/16″ plywood, it’s about 13″ tall, currently has 6 unique parts and is glued together.  There were some minor design problems with this first prototype, specifically, I made the slots where the pieces come together  a bit too big and I think that the 1/16″ ply is too thin for most people to work with (it was kind of annoying for even me to put together).  So, the next version will likely be out of 1/8″ ply, and have tighter slots.

When the design is locked in and detailed out, the models will be for sale here at Almost Scientific, the RGR webpage and any showings of the RGR we do.

For now, you’ll just have to enjoy the photos of the prototype:
