LEGO City Space Port and Lego Space Shuttle 60080

Lego City Space Port 60080

What a great Lego set this is for the astronomy and lego space fan. The full NASA space shuttle model in Lego. Only around 500 pieces, but it does look impressive when finished.

I am sure this lego city space port set will be a big hit, plus remember Lego change their range every 18 months, so it won’t be around forever.

The set contains 5 minifigures; a scientist, 2 service personnel and 2 astronauts.

It’s launch day at the LEGO City Spaceport. Load the satellite into the space shuttle and use the powerful, mobile launchpad to slowly maneuver it to the launch site.

Then deliver the astronauts with the service vehicle and get strapped in as countdown commences, 3.. 2.. 1.. liftoff! Feel the power as the main engines ignite and send the shuttle hurtling into space.

Eject the external fuel tank and rocket boosters and then open the cargo bay doors ready to launch the satellite! It’s another successful mission for the LEGO City Spaceport!

Lego Space Shuttle

Lego Space ShuttleJust found this on my travels of the web, amazing – a brilliant Lego Space Shuttle on it’s launch pad.

This is what all astronomers really want for Christmas, forget all that boring astronomy equipment, more gloves, scarves and hats, we want to sit in the warm of an evening and build something like this Lego Space Shuttle model.

We don’t want a proper model to make either, we don’t want the mess of glue getting everywhere, then you have to paint the grey plastic panels of traditional models. Plus you might vcut yourself with the stanley knife whilst cutting out plastic pieces, and when you are finished the model never looks anything like it does on the box.

With the Lego Space Shuttle model it’s easy and there is no mess! What a great way to commemorate the end of life of the space shuttle by having this Lego model.

Here is some information on the Lego Space Shuttle:
