I've recently made changes to the LDD version of this model, which I've added below.
About this creation
My original design. The basic shape is correct, but I was never happy with the side hatch.
Starboard. I have designed decals, but have yet to print them. I also have yet to order the bricks for my changes :(
My custom minifig crew, with uniform decals from eBay.
The original aft cabin. The sliding door design will remain the same, but the wall will move forward a bit to accommodate more details.
The nav and helm consoles. The only change I am making here is the dorsal closure, which will be a bit more streamlined.
The main change I made was to bring the cabin separation forward quite a bit. This doesn't adversely affect the arrangement of the forward cabin, but it does allow enough space in the back for everything that is supposed to go in there.
Here is the revised aft cabin, with accurate engine details. There is a phaser locker in there as well, and room for a toilet, although I haven't included it. Besides, since the roof doesn't open over this portion, you'll never get to see the phaser locker. But at least I'll know it's there!
Finally, you can see the impulse engine is thinner, and the side hatch looks more accurate.
And some last minute changes, because I just can't have a shuttle without a toilet that you can see! So: hinged roof, deuterium tanks, phaser locker, toilet, engineering control panel. NOW it's done!
Thank you so much for giving us the plans for the shuttle craft. It took ages, but I got all the parts. A couple of substitutions as certain parts in the plans are not made - 6 1 x 6 white tiles instead of the 6 x 6. The yellow bracket with 2 studs does not come in yellow. I chose white. The model was satisfying to build - a little fiddly, but not surprisingly so. It is solid and playable - except for the rockets. I would suggest to anyone building the craft, look over the instructions before starting. I think you will want to put the tanks in very soon and put the control panel together and put them in sooner than they say. All in all, I am really chuffed I did it - and my 3 year old grandson who is just as Star Trek and Star Wars crazy as I am will be delighted.
