The first step of creating a cardboard rocket ship is to obtain flat cardboard pieces. So I have disassembled one of my cardboard boxes into several moderately sized pieces. The first part I decided to make is the body of the ship. The body will be a hexagon prism, so I would need 6 identical cardboard pieces. Based on the size of the cardboard pieces that I have, I decided to make the body 10 inches tall, and each of the 6 sides will be 2.5 inches wide.
I then used my ruler and pen to draw cutting lines on the flat pieces to make sure that each pieces that make up the body of the ship would be as close to identical as possible.
The next step in creating the body of the ship would be to cut cardboard into 6 same-sized pieces and put them together to make a hexagon prism using glue. The top portion of the ship can be created with the same method used to create the body but with triangular pieces instead of rectangular pieces. The body and the top would give me the general shape of the rocket ship, but I will need to think of more features to add to the ship to make it more unique.
