Anyone know of interrupted sinusoidal projections of mars or other planets (or the moon)?

The question comes out of a "wouldn't it be cool if" conversation with a teacher looking at some old globes and wondering if they could be turned into moon or Mars globes.

Technically they are interrupted projections, but we usually just call them gores, or globe gores. Try out a few here:
