Project Description:

I made a box kite fashioned after the Tardis Police Box from Doctor Who. IT FLEW!!! I spent a lot of time figuring out a way to make the kite keep as much surface as possible, look realistic, and still ensure that it can fly. It also flies in a similar manner to the way the TARDIS flies in the show [which is the way a box would move in the sky].

How to Build the Kite:

Materials:
Adhesive Vinyl Sheets 8.5” x 11” [Preferably Inkjet or whatever printer you have at home]
Box Kite [So you can use the pre existing structure]
RipStop Nylon – Royal Blue
Sewing Machine
