Seventy-one elderly people in Urumqi 500 plastic bottles 1.5 meters high rocket model
Nowadays, more and more people are keen on the production of model handicrafts. Recently, a 71-year-old man who is keen on making it by hand has spent 15 days making a rocket model up to 1.5 meters from 500 plastic bottles.
The old man named Zhao Jianshe is a resident of the Xiyuan Street community in the Urumqi Economic and Technological Development Zone (Toutunhe District). At the age of 71, he had a childlike innocence and was keen to make it by hand. He often used broken cardboard boxes, small bottles to glue buildings, pagodas, etc., and decorated his appearance.
This time, Zhao Jian spent 15 days to complete a rocket model up to 1.5 meters. The model of the launch vehicle is designed to be very sophisticated, with external structures such as arrows and four boosters. It looks very realistic.
"The continuous development of the aerospace industry in the motherland has given me a steady stream of momentum." Zhao Jianshe said that the "difficult" rocket carrier is the booster. Since the bottle is round, it must be repeated in order to be tight Paste. This "rocket model" consumed 500 30 mm x 60 mm medicine bottles and 5 bottles of glass glue.
On November 18th this year, the Shenzhou-XI manned spacecraft successfully returned to Earth, and astronauts Jing Haipeng and Chen Dong successively emerged from their cabins, setting a record of the longest space residency time for Chinese astronauts.
After watching this exciting scene in front of the TV, Zhao Jianzhi, who was keen on handcrafting, immediately decided to DIY a rocket model to commemorate and spend 15 days to complete the model.
In 2017, Zhao Jian’s wish was to make a model of an automobile by hand. "The size of the motor car and the materials it consumes are well measured. The body is hollow and can be seen through the window." Zhao Jian describes the appearance of the model of this car.
Regarding how the rocket model will be placed next, the old man said: “I hope this model can be placed in public places in the future, such as in the park and in the center of the plaza, so that more people can see it.
