Space Shuttle & Launch Pad
Blast off into space with this cool mini model of one of the few space shuttles that used to roam our atmosphere! With the space shuttle, launch pad, rocket boosters and external tank, your all good to go for an exciting adventure in Space.
This model includes: 1 detailed mini Space Shuttle, 2 rocket boosters, 1 external tank, and 1 launch pad.
Description: The shuttle includes 3 rear engines, wings, tail, and movable elevons (which are the flaps on the rear parts of both wings).
The boosters are just plain old boosters and the same goes for the external tank.
The launch pad doesn't have a lot of detail, but it has the major stuff.
How and why I built this model: I originally built this as an entry for the contest Moments in Space, but as I kept building, I decided I would submit this as a project as well. I based this model off the shuttles Endeavour and Discovery. I got a lot of ideas off of KingsKnight's project NASA Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale), and when LEGO Ideas rejected that project (which I still don't know why they did), I worked even harder on this model. It took me about ten days to build this model, but it was definetly worth it. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out.
Brick count: This project contains three hundred twenty-seven (327) bricks.
