Mars Excursion Rover

By John Geigle


This is a 1 to 1 scale model of the Mars excursion rover. It's made from styrene, resin and ABS plastics. Each wheel is a one piece resin casting with a water jet-cut steel hub. The frame is one inch steel rod sheathed in 1/8" styrene. We used 1" steel rod inside the legs for the support of the model. This project about 3 months to complete and will be on permenant display at the Virgina Air and Space Center in Hampton, Virginia. I know this is not a kit but thought everyone may enjoy it anyway. Maybe we can make a resin kit out of it.
