Our very own Rachel Hobseon @ CRAFT spotted these. She writes:

This project combines two of my favorite things: crayons and rockets. It may have taken John Coker 12 years to complete this project (hey, who among us hasn’t had a case of lingering works-in-progress?) but the result was more than worth it. He’s even included a step-by-step of how he made the rockets. The detail in matching the Crayola design is pretty impressive. I just want to know if he could find a way to add in that awesome Crayola smell.

    (testing comments) rocket is my favorite color

    To get all the marks out of the sky.

    Nicely done!

    That crayon smell might actually be added by leaving a few regular crayons in the box at launch time, but then again that’s a bit of fire hazard at those temperatures…

    Follow the link- GREAT detail!

    BTW- it ‘only’ took 6 years, 1998-2004, as this is somewnat dated… but none the less interesting.
