Space Shuttle

Descreption

One of Centuri’a most spectacular kits. Both booster ship and piggyback shuttle glide back to earth after separating at apogee while the rocket booster pod returns separately by streamer. Detailed decal sheet with authentic marking, plastic cones, pre-cut balsa wings and fins plus spec sheet on the real ship make shuttle a space-age project you’ll not want to miss.
