Description

This is a clean Cargo Bay version of the Space Shuttle, which flew from 1981-2011 as NASA’s main form of crew transportation. This replica is built at about 70% scale. This replica features a 5+ meter External tank. Tested to 25 ton capacity.¨ The OMS engines have high gimbal range and run off LFO as in real life. The main shuttle tank on the space plane is locked during ascent so it must be unlocked for it to provide fuel.¨The whole assembly works great at 2X physics.¨Mods: Procedural parts, Tweakscale, IR, JebediahKerman 42 Procedural Parts textures, and KJR.¨Flight Instructions¨Space TO Liftoff!
