Rocket Launch Pad Scale Models

This was a two-part project involving rocket scale models and rocket launch pad scale models.

The rocket display scale models were built in 1:200th scale. They were mounted on black melamine bases for display purposes.

The second part of the project involved 1:200th scale rocket launch pad scale models. These large-scale models were made from a variety of materials. Tooling board and plywood were CNC routed for the bases. Sheet metal was welded to provide sturdy towers for the rocket launch pads. ABS and styrene added details. The treads were 3D printed.

After the rocket launch pad scale models were built, custom crates needed to be designed to safely house and transport the models.
