Galileo 1/45 Scale Model


We invite you to build your own Galileo spacecraft scale model.

First, browse the assembly instructions. Then, if you decide to tackle the project, you can download the six parts sheets to print, cut out, and glue together. If you click on the image above, you'll see some more views of the assembled Galileo scale model.

You'll need a black & white printer, some card stock, a transparency, and a few other items which are listed in the assembly instructions. The parts sheets are available as PDF files, which can be read by the Adobe Acrobat Reader on just about any kind of computer. You may download the Adobe Acrobat Reader from Adobe free of charge.

Galileo is one of the most complex robotic spacecraft ever flown. This detailed scale model is a construction project which is probably not appropriate for people younger than about ten years of age, depending on skill and motivation. Assembly requires several hours' time and great care. Once you assemble the model, we guarantee you'll know the Galileo spacecraft very well indeed!
