Space Shuttle

With the shuttle fleet retiring I thought building a LEGO® space shuttle was appropriate. This is not a model of any particular shuttle, but simply a generic "space shuttle". Eventually I probably will give it a name and finish a few of the details. I initially did a robotic arm to go with the shuttle, but didn't include it in the instructions because I wasn't completely happy with the design. At some point maybe I'll get back to it and complete an arm that I like and include it in the instructions... but for now it's on hold.

LEGO® Model vs. Real

As all the models were to scale, it was interesting to see the difference of scale between the fighters (say an F-16 Fighting Falcon) and the shuttle. It brought home how big the shuttle really is. That was actually one of my motivations in building to-scale LEGO® models: to be able to compare different aircraft sizes. It's part of my kid's education... at least that's my excuse!
