A beautiful cast resin model that, luck has it, could also be a fantastic nose cone!

Martin Goldsack has introduced a new line of models based on the spacecraft designs of the 1950s as proposed by people like Wehrner von Braun, Fred Ordway, and Willy Ley, and seen in the artwork of Chesley Bonestell or Fred Freeman, "How the Future Was".

The kit comprises 30 resin parts, including optional wheeled or ski landing gear and optional canards, and includes decals for PanAm (both pre- and post-1955 logo), American Airlines (1950s and 60s versions), NASA, and NACA (forerunner of NASA), or of course you can use your own decals to create an individual shuttle. Just leaving the drawing board are decals of the Royal Space Force roundel as conceived by Ellis and Weston.

The Shuttle Orbiter can be built with canard fins, a T tail or both. Gear up for flying or gear down for display. You can mount it atop BT-60 or a 38mm motor tube with a little jiggery pokery. It's easy to rig the recovery harness so that it lands flat... and with a bit more work you might even try turning it into a glider. Best of luck with that angle of attack!

Coming soon are the Shuttle Orbiter Type 2 meant for penetrating the Martian atmosphere and a good old fashioned tail-first power landing Space Ship.

More pictures asap!
