All parts are moveable, i.e., wing flaps, rudder, landing gear, payload bay doors with cargo to be placed inside.
External Tank umbilical doors open and close in order to mount orbiter on external tank.
Crew compartment removable top to see flight deck and also the mid-deck.
Snap on Solid Rocket Boosters that are detachable! Detachable External Tank.
Several different stands are provided to display the shuttle in launch configuration, in flight configuration with open payload bay doors, with payload inside or being held by the remote manipulator robotic arm. Can also display with shuttle in SRB separation mode and External Tank separation mode, as well as landing/landed mode with landing gear extended! No parachute though!.
Only problems I had was that instructions are in Japanese. No English. Was able to follow drawings to assemble various accessories.
Other problem was getting payload bay doors open. Instructions left out one step, but there was an additional piece of paper to amend instructions, but even with that extra step found it difficult to get payload bay doors open without nicking white paint on top of payload bay door centerline because I used finger nail to pry open door.
Also, I was not able to remove top of crew cabin to reveal flight deck and then the mid-deck. I didn't want to pull too hard because I didn't want to damage model.
Main stand comes with three lights so that one can illuminate the shuttle on the stand just as the real shuttle is illuminated on the launch pad.Read more ›
It comes with a lighted stand, that in a darkened room makes the stack appear ready for a night launch. However you can choose to display in either launch or orbit mode. The shuttle itself is finely detailed. It has etched thermal blankets in the appropriate places as well as the tiling on the underside. It even has the "cut here in emergency" markings on the starboard side of the spacecraft. How many of you knew there were such markings on the shuttle. The payload bay doors open and close and reveal a very detailed payload bay area. The model comes with an external module which can be "grappled" just like the real thing. And yes it come with an RMS. The solid rocket motors as well as the external tank are also finely detailed.
As the shuttle era comes to a close there are many good, less expensive space shuttle models to choose from. I chose this one because the manufacturer has a good reputation. And I wanted a shuttle model in this scale that I would be able to display prominently. This product lives up to those goals in every respect.
