    MOC: Lego Ideas - Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale)

    White is a good alternate color if you want to use the same design. @shopsmart (might have the username wrong) has a design to make an orange tank using available parts, but the design will be slightly different. You could also make a dark red or tan tank with his designs with a couple small changes.

    Hey all, I made a sticker sheet for pretty much all variants and eras of the Orbiter. I added it to a google drive folder with my other Space Shuttle files to make it easy to find: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1qaZ65qgg1iyzjB215oiaOj9k9cbCB6Cp?usp=sharing I would also highly recommend looking at this link for reference on which stickers to use and where to place them: http://axmpaperspacescalemodels.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Space-Shuttle-External-Markings.pdf?fbclid=IwAR3ALlFONPVIVCddrfOTLUN9Cc_cLf_0u3zuliSsiR7nKBygPY16SPe953M

    I don't have a parts list, but on the facebook page mentioned above, I posted the Stud.io file. This should contain everything you need to make a bricklink parts list. I hope this link will work. It's the original post where I shared the file (Only for personal use please)... https://www.facebook.com/groups/saturnvmods/permalink/449221398816450/ BTW, if you're searching for this or any of my other files on the facebook page, I started each filename with "KingsKnight" to make it easier to find.

    I finally got around to making instructions for the Launch Pad Display for the Space Shuttle. This is an upgrade over the one in the original Lego Ideas Update section (again sort of a 2.0). It's not a full launch pad, but a segment of it (16x32 studs) just for display. However, the elements on it can be used for a full launch pad display if someone wanted to expand on it. And again, this is for personal use only please.
 Lego Ideas Space Shuttle Launch Pad Display Instructions PDF I hadn't planned on instructions for that. That was sort of a dummy satellite. If you'd like I can try and recreate the original build if I can remember it.

    Oh either will work. Not sure if I mentioned it, but I'm putting together a set of this for my friend, so I had to be specific based on the parts I have/bought. In actuality, you can swap out whichever clips work best. I will say though, that I use the old style clip on the tail because it looks cleaner. It looks more like a smooth line. But it's a minor design thing.

    Hi all, I finally sat down and compiled instructions for my Lego Ideas Space Shuttle. With the help of @Shiva and @shopsmart, as well as others on Facebook, this version has been improved over the original Ideas submission, so it's stronger and more stable (I'm calling it v2.0). Some notes on these instructions: - Contains instructions for the Orbiter, External Tank, Solid Rocket Boosters, a simple display stand, and the Astrovan (I will try and post the Launch Pad from the Ideas Update at a later date). - The parts lists are at the end of each section. - This is my first time using instruction software, so I'm learning. It's low resolution and I had to fix a lot of the pages in photoshop and add necessary notes (and missing parts!). Hopefully I can put out an updated version that looks cleaner. - I had to pick specific colors since I’m putting together an actual set (for a friend's birthday), but all of the internal colors can be whatever you want to help save on costs. - This is for personal use only please. Thanks, KingsKnight Lego Ideas Space Shuttle Instructions PDF

    I love what you've done here for the nose cone. My original had several weak connections. I made a stronger version based on your great design. I had to make a few adjustments to make it work with dark orange pieces near the top. I also added even more strength by attaching it to the center using 2 wheel axles (part 30000 "Brick, Modified 2 x 2 with Pins and Axle Hole") I also had to adjust to few things because the base/attachment point of my nose cone starts at a slightly different level from your design, but overall I'm sure you can see the similarities.

    Wow thank you for the kind words Shiva. It has been inspiring seeing your work and others in improving the original design! I think it can get even better :)

    Yeah, I really want a nice new shuttle, and I'm hoping they only said "no" because they're working on one. One can hope.

    Yeah true it's busy. It's just one solution. You can make the wing cleaner by using 3 triangle parts instead of alternating with the other corner tile. Those parts are so new right now that they're hard to come by. And I agree with the color. Hopefully they make more colors for that part. I doubt the old style parts would stop Lego from making it a set. They pretty much always rework the model anyway, and they probably would have figured out an alternative (maybe even using the triangle tiles since they probably knew they existed before we did!)

    I also wanted to work out what the wing might look like using the new triangle pieces instead of the old discontinued wedge plates. Until these new triangle parts existed, there wasn't a way to get the correct length 45 degree angle without gaps unless you used the old discontinued wedge parts. The new parts have the advantage of letting you make the bottom of the wing all black, and also letting you make more of the wing SNOT.

    I have updates. I replaced the complex old internal structure of the ET with the streamlined and stable new one. With the extra space I was able to update some of the colors to the correct dark orange (I had to use part 2577 Brick, Round Corner 4 x 4 Full Brick since the macaroni version (48092) doesn't come in dark orange). I was also able to rework the bottom to make it more stable. It looks a lot better and is so much more secure to handle than the old version. I later went in and adjusted the bottom part further. It's still a work in progress, but I was able to get the color of the tank at the bottom to be all dark orange. Sorry these aren't the greatest photos, but this is how it went together:

    That looks great Shiva! I wish they made those 1x3 curved slopes in dark orange. That was my original approach. I will be keeping my eye out for that in a future set if it ever happens. That intertank looks clean.

    MOC: Lego Ideas - Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale)

    Since Lego doesn't make 1x3 curved slopes in Dark Orage, I wanted to figure out an alternate build that would work in the right color. It's not perfect, but it's exactly the right diameter needed.

    Awesome! Before you buy for the External Tank, I'm still working on simplifying it as you can see in the image posted a couple posts back. It should make it cheaper and stronger.
