Queen of Hearts Rocket Ship - Paper toy with printable template

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
fully disassembled.

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.

Download, print and build your own rocket ship here.
