The Estes 1385 Space Shuttle kit was produced from 1982 to 1989. Boyce Aerospace Hobbies 3D prints reproduction parts for that famed model. The nose cone, shoulder and two OMS pods are all printed in bright white ABS for increased durability. The nose cone fits BT-60 tubes (not included) and weighs only 1oz and measures 3.47"
Just love to clone OOP rockets and Boyce Aerospace makes some quality parts for my projects. The Columbia space shuttle parts are outstanding.
The balsa used in the original kit is 3/32” thick. The original kit accounted for that thickness of the bottom of the orbiter’s cockpit. I had to sand the heck out of the balsa to make it look like a natural transition. Add that 3/32” lip to the bottom of the orbiter’s cockpit, I’ll give it 5 stars.
Bringing back these BT-60 size tube shuttle parts is really exciting modeling that goes 600ft. up in the air.
