Magnet stand for rocket models
by Lee Fleischer

 

 


An alternative to the traditonel display

The picture shows the stand, I made for the hermes model designed by Niels Jahn Knudsen. Instead of just placing the model on the stand. I have made a stand, which shows the rocket lifted off the ground. Still it is possible to remove the rocket from the stand. 

 


I will use Niels' model of the bluestreak missile to demonstrate how simple it is to make a magnetic stand. First you will have to buy some small cheap magnets.

 

When building the model, you glue a small metal wire into the tube, that form the rocket. 
The wire makes it posible for the magnets to attach to the paper model.
The last pictures shows the finished result.
