    08/10/2012: Just an update, I've priced out buying all the pieces I need to make this set in real life. I fully intend to replace the LDD photos with an actual model when I have the time/money to back it.

    06/19/2012: Hi everyone! Thanks for the support! I've recently made a MOCpages account, so here is the link to my page:

    06/14/2012: I have completed the updated version as of now. The new model will be the cover image and new images will be below as well.

    06/14/2012: As tkunsman pointed out, my model is missing a key element. I am currently fixing this issue and I will update/organize the pictures accordingly. Thanks again for your ongoing support!

    06/12/2012: Thanks to everyone for the early support! 5 supporters in 24 hours is not bad, I'll take that. Tell your friends, your coworkers, your dogs even!

    UPDATE: The new and more accurate/proportional design is up!
    The cover photo is new model. The Solid Booster Rockets/External Fuel Tank are now more proportional to one another and the Mobile Launcher Platform is now much more detailed and accurate to the real thing.

    UPDATE: I am currently working on a more accurate version as well.

    Hi! This is my first CUUSOO Project that I've ever submitted, I figure it's worth a shot to get my idea out there.

    I took a page from the LEGO Architecture series and made a model not as an attempt to completely replicate the ship, but to capture the essence and look of the subject.

    This set, which is a microbuild of sorts, is based off of the NASA Space Shuttle Discovery.
    The set includes the Shuttle, Solid Booster Rockets/External Fuel Tank, and Mobile Launcher Platform. All 5 pieces can be detached from one another for play or display.

    The exact brick count is 926 pieces. It is not a perfect design, but I'm sure LEGO could definitely perfect it with review.

    Well, that's my idea and I hope you like it.

    Any and all comments/criticism is welcome. Thanks and happy building!
    *Built using LEGO Digital Designer.
