Twilight of the Shuttle (Part 2)

A Shuttle Modelers Reference

My Atlantis Paper Model

Paper Printable Models:

AXM Paper Space Scale Models has models for all the Shuttle Missions. These are great models and fun to put together. It’s totally amazing that you can go here a pick any mission and print and build the model from that mission.
These are high quality models and I have gotten many “oohs” and “aaahs” over the models I have built from this collection.

SST Shuttle-1 – The SST Shuttle-I was introduced in the 1971 Centuri catalog. At the time, NASA was busy with several concepts that could place several tons in earth orbit and return to land at a conventional airstrip and reuse the craft in a short time. This model was based on one of those proposals.
