NASA Astronaut Van Paper Model

E-mail Print

Requested by Francisco Javier Montes at Paper Replika Friends Facebook group, I made this NASA astronaut van (Astrovan) to fill a new space category model. The template is quite simple, contains only 2 sheet of paper. When it assembled you will have a nice 1:48 vehicle scale model. NASA used a classic Clark Cortez Couch as the crew transport. I don't know much about the real vehicle background, but from what I read in a photo caption from NASA website, it was used for transporting Apollo XIII astronauts to their rocket (April 1970). I also know from the movie Apollo 13, their mission was a failure, luckily they managed to get back to the earth from the moon orbit. Tom Hanks starred that movie. A good movie, I always love space and astronaut stuff.

Before you assembly the van main part (1) you have to place both part 10 first, unless you will have difficulty on attach them later.

Close the van with its roof (part 7) and then add details on top of it (part 11,12 and 8). Fold part 5 until shaped like the image above, place them there then put the bumper on top of it. Fold side mirror in half (part 6) then attach it on both sides. Finally complete the van by attaching the wheels.
