Juno Spacecraft
1:50 Scale Model

Assembled Juno Model

We invite you to build your own
Juno Spacecraft scale model.

Spacecraft by nature are made of lightweight materials, so a paper model can be highly realistic if it copies key structural and visual design features. Once you assemble your model, you'll know the Juno mission to Jupiter very well indeed!

First, browse the Assembly Instructions.

Then, if you decide to tackle the project, you can download the two Parts Sheets to print, cut out, and glue together, going through the instructions step by step.

You'll need a color printer, some card stock, and a few other items which are listed in the assembly instructions. The parts sheets are available as PDF files, which you can read using the Adobe Acrobat Reader on just about any kind of computer (free of charge from Adobe).

Juno is a sophisticated spacecraft designed to investigate Jupiter's elemental composition, gravity field, magnetic field, and more. This detailed scale model is a construction project that is probably not appropriate for people younger than about ten years of age, depending largely on motivation and skill. Assembly requires several hours and great care.

Study the Juno Mission webpage from the Southwest Research Institute website, the NASA website, and browse detailed images of the spacecraft taken during launch operations. Learn about how missions like Juno operate, with JPL's tutorial, Basics of Space Flight.
