This afternoon I was looking for some nice space shuttle to print. I found one here http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1966 , but it seemed to be a bit to smooth.
So I googled a little and found some fitting object in the 3D galery. I resized it and repraired it using netfabb and after a short time I printed one with a length of about 105 mm.
The upper wing is a bit too thin to be printable precisely, but it is a little more detailed than the mentioned space shuttle.

But the real cool feature: It is glowing in the dark using phosphorescent PLA.

The model you can download here is scaled up to a length of 135 mm hoping that this size is big enough to print a better wing.

Print it and feel like an atronaut!

This is cool. Thanks! :-)

Watching the Atlantis landing, for the last time. Just printed this to mark the occasion. A lovely little model!

We printed the bottom in black and the rest in glow-in-the-dark. Looks awesome, thanks! (photo uploaded)
