Cavorite Sphere Model


I, Mike Hungerford, hold the sole copyright to each of my model designs and any images thereof on this site, but hereby grant permission for their free use for any legitimate non-profit purpose, so long as the copyright and attribution included in each model's file(s) remains intact and unmodified.

If you wish to make any of my models available from your own Web site, please do so by linking to my models page rather than by hosting copies of the models' files. This ensures that visitors will always find the most current version of any given model.

I would appreciate receiving copies of any modifications made to my designs, simply for my own enjoyment.


Please let me know if you find a problem while building this model, or if you enjoyed building it as much as I enjoyed designing it. A photo of your build would also be welcome. You can send me e-mail here:

Here is the Cavorite Sphere from the motion picture, "First Men in the Moon." Scale is approximately 1/24.

Note: This model requires printing seventeen pages of parts.

The image on the left is a rendered image of my 3D model from which the paper model was developed. The second image is Dar Grigg's photo of his beta build of the model.
