Inspired by themanoutside's PlyPi but not having any ply.. I made this out of hard cardboard, the parts cut out with tin snips and glued together. In true Blue Peter style I used some sticky backed plastic to make it look less cardboardy and a bit more rockety.

You cannot even begin to understand how very honoured I feel to have inspired such an...achievement! Honestly, I can't think of anything made of sticky-back plastic that I've liked more. And what's more, thewomanoutside likes it very much too, and she's a hard one to please!

Now, you just need to fit some rocket motors into the base and wire them up to the GPIO...
