The shuttle is the first orbital spacecraft designed for partial reusability. It carries payloads to low Earth orbit, provides crew rotation for the International Space Station (ISS), and performs servicing missions.
About this creation
Presented to former NASA astranuet Story Musgrave in March 2008.
I love this! Space shuttles are easily the best-looking space-bound craft ever. And this one is awesome. Even the so-called "minor things" work to make it look like a genuine LEGO set. It gives a slightly whimsical feel to make it not-quite-exactly-perfectly-accurate. Very cool.
This is an excellent build! I would live to build this replica if I could find what you used! I am engaged to an astronauts daughter (can't say which of course for security reasons) and would love to put it together for him! PLEASE e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, thanks! And again, great build!
Beautiful job on the form (particularly for a MOC that's not that huge). I like the use of the levers there on the landing gear, as well - very effective. From the colors, to the texture, to the shapes, and even the presentation...top notch!
