Space Shuttle Discovery . About 2 weeks ago I struck gold by finding set 7470 on Ebay very cheap, this is the result of piecing the beauty back together! Enjoy. .
Go check this beauty on Flickr and Reddit too! Links below.
Boy, this thing was an absolute BLAST to build. I haven't had this much fun building a space related build since my SpaceX Rover back during FebRovery. I had to order a small number of parts to finish it, but $20 and my first BrickLink order later, it was complete!
The major modifications to this included tiling the wings and roof, changing the rear tailfin designs, and adding detailing to the Shuttle. Lots of work went into just the black parts on the back of the wings, about 2 1/2 hours of cutting electrical tape for that.
Overall, 2 weeks of work and around $50 for the set and parts is what was put into this thing, I couldn't ask for it to be any better!
Also, it's mighty swooshable! :D
Special thanks to one of my friends on Flickr for editing the photo, he showed me some stuff in Photoshop that I didn't know about. I love this edit, it's freaking awesome!
Hope you guys like this, I may edit this page with a video of me swooshing it! :D
