I am planning to buy a plastic model kit (the type you glue together) of the Space Shuttle, with boosters, & I have 2 questions for you all.
1. I want to get the biggest I can, & with the most (external) detail. Many brands make them, but not many large scale with the boosters. If anyone
has made such a model that you were impressed with, what brand & scale is it ?
2. I don’t want to make this & then just stick it on a shelf to gather dust, I plan on making a display case for it. To make it look even better,
I’d like to also make a replica of the launch pad/tower.
I don’t want the full plans with every beam etc, but enough details that it looks like the real thing from a few metres away. Has anyone got any
suggestions where I might be able to find enough detail to DIY this ? Trying to figure this out from photos is not so easy. Yes I know I will have to
make it from scratch.
I’d also like to do this with the Saturn V rocket & the Lunar Lander, so I’d also appreciate your ideas for them with regard to best model &
launch pad. I expect the lander & rocket will be of different scales.
