SpaceShipOne
A minifig-scale model of Scaled Composites' SpaceShipOne; the first privately operated suborbital spacecraft.
About this creation
This is a minifig-scale model of Scaled Composite's "SpaceShipOne", the first successful privately financed and operated civilian spacecraft. website

The craft is carried up to 50,000 ft by a specially designed jet named "White Knight" (which will be my next project ;) At that altitude, the spacecraft is released (like the X-15) and a rocket engine ignites and boosts it to about 100 km, for a suborbital flight that gives the pilot and up to two passengers about 3 minutes of weightlessness before gliding back to earth

   Older version of SpaceShipOne, it does show the construction techniques pretty well.

I built the "TransWorld SpacePlane" after SpaceShips One and Two, would you mind taking a look?

Being a fan of unconventional aircrafts, I absolutely love your SpaceShipOne. Amzing, that you managed to built the fragile carrier plane, too.

Awesome! Pretty amazing detail! Huge too. Cockpit isn't that accurate, but building it well out of legos would have been impossible! Glad to see you included The White Knight.
