The Democratic republic Of Lego has finally upgraded its space program. Due to competition from the neighboring Legoland which already launched a satellite using its official lego space shuttle 1682 now the president of the Democratic Republic of Lego Vladimir Legovia has ordered a quick upgrade of the space program in order to be able to launch a satellite also. President legovia is worried that Legoland might be trying to spy on the army and might be trying to launch sophisticated missiles using space satellites.
About this creation
The new Space Shuttle. It is based on the vintage Official Lego Space Shuttle set 1682.
The new Space mission control center. They have a good view of the booster rockets and the external fuel tank.
The new space shuttle is nothing more than a modified official Lego Airplane set 6368. I did not added other pieces to the set except the blue external fuel tank and the two red booster rockets and the rear engine and modified turbines.
Loved the way the rear engine looked!
Blue external fuel tank and the two red booster rockets. The booster rockets are custom made in the Democratic Republic Of Lego and look similar to the ballistic anti ship missiles the Democratic Republic Of Lego Army used to have on warships. The external fuel tank is also custom made.
Space Command Control: Democratic Republic Of Lego space shuttle are you ready for liftoff ?
Space Shuttle: Heaven there we go!!!
Space Command Control: Then...take it away...you got it!!
3.....2....1...0 LIFT OFF !!!
A relatively smooth lift off...
Heading to orbit..
Detaching the two red booster rockets.
The blue external fuel tank falls and now the space shuttle relies only on the rear rocket engines for lift into orbit.
The minifig astronaut attempts to launch the satellite into orbit. The satellite is the first one for the Democratic Republic of Lego. The satellite is called "LEGORREY 1"
The space pics came out looking so real!
Satellite "LEGORREY 1" is successfully placed into the orbit. The 'orbit' means the satellite is attached with a cord to the ceiling fan going around my room!
Space Shuttle: We have landed!
Space Command Control: Space shuttle has safely landed.
The first launch of the space shuttle is a success !
