Hello and welcome to the future where multiple corporations compete to build their own fleet of spacecraft! Isn't it great to live in the future!
This is my minifig scale model of the Boeing Corporation's Crew Transportation System (CST-100) Starliner!. The Starliner is a state of the art spacecraft design to ferry a number of passengers and crew into low earth orbit to the International Space Station or even private space stations.
As Boeing put it:
"Boeing’s Crew Space Transportation (CST) -100 spacecraft was developed as part of NASA's Commercial Crew Program. The CST-100 can accommodate up to seven passengers, or a mix of crew and cargo to low-earth orbit destinations such as the International Space Station or the Bigelow planned station. The CST-100 capsule has an innovative, weld-less design and features Boeing LED “Sky Lighting,” wireless internet and tablet technology for crew interfaces."
My model includes several key details of the real CST-100, including: touch screen crew interfaces, service module with engines, heat shield, working docking port, working crew egree hatch, and the distinct thruster "doghouses".
Currently the model comfortably holds 5 minifigures while the real craft can hold a maximum of 7!.
I will update the model over time and gladly welcome feedback!
Ad astra and Leg Godt!
