Space Shuttle Discovery

Main pic of my 7470 Space Shuttle revamp.

 

Boy, this thing was an absolute BLAST to build. I haven't had this much fun building a space related build since my SpaceX Rover back during FebRovery. I had to order a small number of parts to finish it, but $20 and my first BrickLink order later, it was complete!

 

The major modifications to this included tiling the wings and roof, changing the rear tailfin designs, and adding detailing to the Shuttle. Lots of work went into just the black parts on the back of the wings, about 2 1/2 hours of cutting electrical tape for that.

 

Overall, 2 weeks of work and around $50 for the set and parts is what was put into this thing, I couldn't ask for it to be any better!

 

Also, it's mighty swooshable! :D

 

Comments and feedback are appreciated.

 

I'd appreciate that if you fave this you comment on it as well!
