As part of Dragonís re-launch of the complete Space Shuttle fleet in 1/400 scale model form, the third item to be released is Discovery. The actual model portrays the spacecraft as it appeared during STS-124, a flight to the International Space Station (ISS). This mission blasted off from the Kennedy Space Center on 31 May 2008 and returned to Earth on 14 June. On its 35th flight, Discovery delivered to the ISS the Pressurized Module of the Japanese Experiment Module (JEM) as well as an associated robotic arm. The model is finely detailed and is impressive as itís attached to the enormous External Tank (ET) and two Solid Rocket Boosters (SRB). For convenient display, the whole assembly comes with its own stand. Space fans can now launch their own journey of Discovery with this fully finished model!
