This model features two astronauts working in tandem repairing the space telescope. During an actual repair mission, the telescope would be captured by the Space Shuttle's remote manipulator arm and brought into the cargo bay with it's solar panels retracted. For details there are several Hubble serviceable components including the Wide Field Camera which was replaced on the STS-125 mission.
Here's my first pass at the model.
After re-watching the movie Hubble 3D, which is about the STS-125 mission to save Hubble I tweaked the interior details a bit. There's a bit more playability now. It's really hard to reach up into this tiny Hubble and remove some of those circuits. Sadly I couldn't find a way to recreate all the screw Astronaut John Grunsfeld had to remove. I do have a removable handle (on the right) so that you can recreate Astronaut Mike "Mass" Massimino breaking it (on purpose!).
