raygungothicpapermodel (Custom) Raygun Gothic Rocket replicas from Alan Rorie

Apparently there was some kind of giant rocketship at Maker Faire this year. Did anybody else notice this? I tend to tune everything else out when there’s funnel cake around. We should probably put it in a more prominent location next time.

Anyhoo, if, like me, you were at the Faire and happened to miss the 40-foot-tall gleaming aluminum spaceship in the middle of the grounds, on the program, and on all the posters, don’t fret: There are plenty of groovy photos and videos whooshing around the tubes, and if you find yourself unsatisfied by two-dimensional simulacra you could always purchase one of Raygun Gothic crewman Alan Rorie’s kit models of the craft. He’s got beautifully-printed pepakura for $13 and laser-cut plywood for $50.
