I’m looking for advice for what building material and strategy on doing 1/12 scale model of the Myst space rocket. I’m not able to easily add a photo to this thread but google will show the rocket. It’s a 1950s idea of what technology would go into a space rocket like Buck Rogers

Build it like SpaceX

One hoop at a time :

I'd recommend prototyping in paper .
You might want to stay with paper or build the final version from sheet styrene .

Yes sir, I’m looking to try to make a 1/12 scale model of the whole Myst island. I’ve been watching popular YouTube videos to get ideas on how to creat everything from trees to buildings. Excited to start someday but can’t right now because I live in a tiny Chicago apartment

Thanks for the great advice and information. My friend said he can 3D print the whole thing. I find 3D printing amazing but it takes the thrill out of building and learning. I wanted to make a valiant attempt. When all else fails then 3D printer it is
