Dragon 1/144th NASA Space Shuttle "Discovery" w/747-100
Dragon 1/144th NASA Space Shuttle "Discovery" w/747-100 (2013)
Dragon Models has produced a 1/144 scale model of the 747 SCA and Space Shuttle. The main highlights of the kit are the recessed panel lines and cutaway sections on both the orbiter and SCA. Both of these details set the kit apart from the venerable raised panel line Revell 1/144 SCA/Space Shuttle kit. Beyond the basics, the kit offers some great features, such as an included display stand and parts to build the 747 with the landing gear up or down.
There are over 180 pieces—molded in white, gray, and clear—on 17 sprues. Five sprues are dedicated to the Space Shuttle, one to the NASA 747 SCA-specific modifications (including the Shuttle’s ferrying tail cone), and the balance to the 747. The clear sprues, which comprise major portions of the Space Shuttle, have excellent clarity and reasonable attachment points, for the most part. Six pages of the typical Dragon instructions are included; however, the painting guide is printed in black and white on the final page as opposed to the full-color guide usually featured on the box bottom. A single decal sheet provides one marking option: N911NA in the white/gray scheme with the Space Shuttle Discovery. The 747 decals include cockpit instrument panels, exterior markings, and a seven-part blue cheatline. The same sheet provides exterior markings (featuring the later “meatball”-logo wing emblems) for Discovery and has a limited selection of heat-tile decals.
