Revell SCA & Shuttle kit
1 Attachment(s)
Hi there,

It's been a while but I have finally got some building done!
Here's an image of the recently re-issued Revell 1/144th SCA & Shuttle.
Not an easy kit but cheap and -as you can see- builds up into a fine model with a little care.

Will be a full review and build in Sci-Fi & Fantasy Modeller No:29.

Re: Revell SCA & Shuttle kit
Very nice . . . I've just picked one up myself and have started scratch building an interior for it. (all those windows SCREAM for it) :)

Any tips for someone just getting started on this one? :)

If you are doing the interior of the 747, these might help.

Re: Revell SCA & Shuttle kit
Oh wow . . . Thank you. I've got a directory full of pictures that I've been using for reference, but I didn't have ANY of those.

That first picture you posted is EXACTLY the last picture I needed to fill in some detail.

Not sure if those are your own pictures or not, but, if they are, do you have any indication of roughly how old they are? Or which SCA its from? Most of my shots are of NASA 905 . . . but there seems to be insulation on the walls that isn't present on more recent shots of 905.

I'm hoping to do mine from the Enterprise ALT era . . . . so just wondering if I need to make things look more like your shots instead.

And lastly, REALLY sorry for the hijack . . . maybe should split this off. Just don't want to detract from the kick ass work on Hector's model.

Re: Revell SCA & Shuttle kit
I do not know what tail number this was. The pictures are from 1998 or 1999, when I was stationed at Moffet Field, in California. The base hosted an airshow, and NASA put this plane on public display, with ramps so that you could go inside. I don not know if they ever let people in it any other time, for me it was a once in a lifetime thing.
Unfortunately, this was long before digital cameras, so I had to be very sparing with my photo taking.

Re: Revell SCA & Shuttle kit
OK, after looking at some info on the internet, it looks like my photos are of #911.

Re: Revell SCA & Shuttle kit
LOVE the "black side down" picture.

Well thanks for the info . . . . kinda looked like from the clothing that it was a 90's thing. :)

Thanks for all the info and pictures. VERY helpful. Hopefully my build thread will start soon. :)

Re: Revell SCA & Shuttle kit
I'm gearing up to tackle this subject in 1/100 scale. Entex Boeing 747-200 and Tamiya Space Shuttle. Some special add-ons to make all come together.
