The Revell Boeing 747-100 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft Model Kit in 1/144 scale from the plastic aircraft model kits range accurately recreates the real life NASA space shuttle transport aircraft.
This Revell aircraft model requires paint and glue to complete. This is just one of many great kits from the Revell plastic models range. Revell colours required: 4, 91, 99, 371, 374, 378.
For this model we recommend using paints from the following ranges.
We also highly recommend the following ranges for tools and accessories.
The first launch of the "Shuttle Carrier Aircraft 905" - a converted Boeing 747-123 passenger aircraft - with the Space Shuttle "Enterprise" attached to its back took place in 1977. During five test flights the space shuttle was disconnected from the SCA 905 in order to test the flight and landing characteristics of the orbiter. The "Enterprise" landed of its own accord after its approach glide. By the end of the Space Shuttle program the American National Aviation and Space Agency (NASA) had conducted more than 220 "piggy backmissions" with the SCA 905. During its last missions, the "Discovery", the "Enterprise" and the "Endeavour" were transferred to various museums. On 17 March 2012 SCA 905 landed at Dulles International Airport with the Space Shuttle "Discovery". The Space Shuttle is now on permanent display in the "National Air and Space Museum" in Washington.

Brilliant original kit
For its vintage this kit goes together really well and provides a very realistic representation of this iconic period in the space shuttle history. Dealing with wonderland models is always a good experience very quick and efficient service

SCA & Shuttle
Good kit to build, very easy, SCA main undercarriage a bit tricky, can never seem to get undercarriage to sit right especially the rear bogies, other than that a good kit.
