I'm building my kid a shuttle from a page in the Young Scientist Book of Spaceflight that used to be mine.

The kid likes planes, and this is the closest I can get to that now.

I've already traced things out and have some foamcore. Will cut things out and maybe glue and prime tomorrow

Stuff has been sealed a light grey. Photos later?

Planning on off-white and grey going up to pure white highlights. pale blue windows and black under-carriage. After base coats, I'll do a quick wash of a navy translucent to try and bring out panel lines.

Red stripe near the end.

I might use this process to make planes for gaming later.

I wish I had a proper model image to copy. I'm just winging it (ha!).

Where the last update left off.

Anyway, here's where I'm stopping for now  I might try to redo some of it. Will definitely try to come back with different brushes. I think what I'm trying to do is clear, but I'm not quite getting the effect I want.

So I added a dark under my Horizon ish line... and let it dry and did a wash, and now I'll need to redo today's work because it looks like the shuttle went through re entry and landed in a muddy field.  Pics only if I'm happy with the rescue

Some touchups... are these even noticeable? I dunno anymore. Still need to add a red stripe on the sides and black undercarriage and some lighter blue on the windows and then I'm gonna call it

Another coat of black in the bottom and some white in the windows and then seal with modgepodge. This is mostly done.

Maybe I should've done this for all my lines? Probably.

I guess if I want to make my own, there's some astronauts and pilots I own or could get. Though I seem to remember another bones pilot besides the pulp one who isn't showing up. Is my memory that bad?

I've painted several astronauts and pulp aviators/aviatrices...any distinguishing features you recall about the missing pilot? I know Willy Brassbender (50013) would make a good pulp aeronaut, but he's not in Bones yet, nor is the Bomber Sophie (03988). I could recommend some figures from other manufacturers if need be...
