|My latest completed paper toy, the Queen of Hearts Rocket Ship. The queen is no longer|
bound to single terrestrial exploits but can extend her reign throughout the cosmos.
|Pictured here is the Queen of Hearts Rocket Ship. It stands about 6.5 inches tall, not |
including the spindle.
|The nose section removes to provide access to the cockpit where the queen flies the ship.|
The spindle on the nose of the ship is a toothpick colored with a felt tip marker.
|The queen is easily removed from the cockpit. The toy contains three independent pieces when|
|Once the nose section is removed, it functions as a tent to provide the queen with protection from|
the harsh alien elements.
|The Queen of Hearts Rocket Ship prints out on 2 8.5x11" sheets of paper. Decorative hearts and|
control panels are provided. It is easier to put them on the inside before assembled.
