Previous experience recommended.

This model builds into a detailed 1:48 scale replica of SpaceShipOne. Two versions are now available representing the vehicle as it appeared in December 2003 (the time of its first powered flight) and October 2004 (when it won the X-Prize). The completed model is approximately 7 inches (18cm) long.

You will need a colour printer capable of handling card or cover stock to print the parts sheets. 67 lb cover stock (approx 8.5 thousandths of an inch or 0.2 mm thick) is recommended.
