Nice job, I nearly bought the kit a couple of years ago so I could use it as a pattern --- I want to do it in 1/72 scale ---- :think:

Cheers 8-)
To be fair its not that big a footprint ....50cm x 38cm and 65cm high .
If you display it with the Cargo Bay swung over the shuttle like this...

It measures 30 x 38 ....fairly compact . :thumb:

I so want this kit. This looks like a fantastic build and would keep me busy for a few weeks rather than a few days with other, smaller kits.
You did well with it.

Excellent piece of work! Got one in the stash and it is planned as one of my future dream builds - may even be tempted to invest in the after-market PE kits which give it a mind-blowing level of detail (also wallet-blowing!).
