I have been holding off on this until I found some tile decals of witch I have now ordered.
Here's some of the work done so far the cockpit is well detailed but it's a shame it won't be seen when it's installed. IMG_20210404_184914.jpgIMG_20210404_185012.jpgIMG_20210404_184933.jpgIMG_20210404_184926.jpg

I have just taken a quick Google and they emerge in the cargo bay via a hatch at the bottom as hatches are just behind the pilots seats to get to the deck below

If it works well but is more expensive than other things that work just as well, chances are it’s going to get retired …

BTW, if “might-have-been” Space Shuttles (and other real space stuff) are of interest to you, I can recommend For All Mankind.

Finished all bar the decals and the ones I had set from the us seem to be rather nice and easy to apply. IMG_20210414_170116.jpgIMG_20210414_170105.jpgIMG_20210414_174004.jpgIMG_20210414_173951.jpg
