Space Shuttle with Satelite, Rocket Boosters and fuel tanks
About this creation
Some of you avid lego book readers might recognize this Space Shuttle from "The Unofficial Lego Builders Guide" and for the most part you would be right. I changed the design to open the payload doors and added the Rocket Boosters amd Fuel Tank. The whole overall design is to the proper scale of about 1:185. I threw in my own design for the red, white and blue rockets to give the model some character.

The payload doors are open and the satelite has been let go. I used some 1x2 half arches and 2x4 half arches to get a close shape and to have enough room in the payload room.


The satelite was made using 1x 1x1 w/ studs on all sides, 1x lever, 1x 1x1 cone brick, 2x 1x1 top grabbers, 2x 1x2 w/ handles, and 2x 1x2 grills. Very easy to build.


Heres the side view of the the Shuttle and Rockets. The rockets bend mainly because of the weight and I haven't had great luck with inserting axles into the 2x2 cylinders, so if anyone has any luck please help me.


T-minus 5 second 'til you're done reading 3... 2... 1...
