Mars Curiosity Rover Wood Model: Curious Why I Don’t Have This on My Desk Yet

While most of us will never get to visit the red and dusty surface of Mars, we have been afforded the ability to get a first-hand view of the planet, courtesy of NASA’s Curiosity Rover. And while we’ll never get a chance to see the Curiosity itself up close and personal, you can now have your own mini-Rover on your desktop.


Designer Arnold Patrick Martin created this awesome model of the Curiosity Rover using 120 individual pieces cut not with a scroll saw. It’s made from 1/8″ MDF plywood, and measures about 10″ long. It ships in several easily assembled sections to ensure that it doesn’t get broken in shipment.


Best of all, you can get this without spending billions on a space program to launch you to Mars. All you need is $150(USD) and the ability to click this link.
