Hi Pinto. Wow! That’s different. A very nice model. I’ve several Pilot Station models, very happy with them. Is the shuttle detachable from the fuel tank?

No. The space shuttle is attached to the tank, via 2 fixed pins. It is a very showy model in my opinion.

Hi Robert;
The dimensions are interesting;
The Space Shuttle- Height 40cm
Wing / wing- 28 cm
The Tank- Height 55cm


It is a piece that can be seen in the distance!
