    Originally, I had planned on building this during my vacation to Destin, Florida.

    However, after a incident on the way down that caused the family vehicle to look like this:

    That plan was quickly out the window.
    Regardless, I was able to recover the box (went to the Revell-Germany SU-47) that contained several models that I had printed off and most of my building supplies from the wreckage of our RV. This was one of the models in that box.

    The landing gear were scratchbuilt.


    Congratulations to the crew of STS-117 for a great mission.
