The Lego "Shuttle Adventure" is a beautiful, detailed model of the Space Shuttle program. Lego did not get the official sanction to use NASA decals or names, so this is the Adventure Shuttle model. Lego could have fooled me, this looks a lot like a really fine scale model of the real live Space Shuttle, I'm sorry NASA couldn't find their way clear to license this kit.
The construction is not very difficult, I think most Lego Maniacs will find it a challenging but not particularly hard build. It is much easier to build than the 1:12 scale Ferrari Formula 1 car (LEGO Ferrari F1 Large Racer). A fifteen and twenty year old Lego Maniacs built this in a pleasant afternoon. Mr. Fifteen year old only made one major mistake with the wing portion of the Shuttle - Mr. Fifty Three year old Lego Maniac had to fix it up for him (he misjudged the big white triangular pieces by one row of bricks).
At 1204 pieces, this is a large kit. In the world of Lego, pricing is almost always by the weight of plastic, or number of parts. With that price / part ratio, this is kit is on the expensive side.
The instructions are in two thick books. The pictures are easy to follow. None of us found any difficulty picking out the pieces and only had one alignment problem. Two people can easily share building this kit - the main Shuttle can be built independent of the brown external fuel tank and the two white solid rocket boosters. Frankly, it's the way they serviced the Shuttle in real life.Read more ›
This was a "no-brainer" for me. Although Lego.com still offers this set; I bought it from Amazon ($99) to get free shipping & no tax, saving me close to $30. Amazon packed the set well. The shuttle, EFT (external fuel tank), and SRBs (solid rocket booster) look great. The four pieces fit well together and sit nicely on the little launch pad. Being 30 I bought this set for myself in hopes that It would ignite my 5yr old's interest in the shuttle program which is about to end thanks to our "Fearless Leader". My 5yr old son built the EFT & SRBs mostly by himself. Playability is leaving me a little disappointed for a $99 Lego set. I built the shuttle which needed some modification to the rear landing gear: I turned the rear wheels around and moved the rear spring down one hole to make the shuttle roll better without the wheels collapsing. The shuttle has to be handled very deliberately otherwise parts will break free and you will have to halfway disassemble the rear of the shuttle. My son gets frustrated after about 30 minutes of the shuttle continually needing reassembly, but he is only 5 and Lego recommends 16+ (I can see why). Two Astronauts fit in the cockpit with their arms in the perfect position.Read more ›
