LEGO has teamed up with NASA to make this superb model for the 40th Anniversary of the space shuttle era of human spaceflight, which began in April 1981.
The first shuttle to take flight at NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre in Florida was the Space Shuttle Colombia on the 12th April 1981 an amazing 40 years ago! To read all about this momentous occasion please go to:
This stunning model that is made up of 2354 pieces was released on the 1st April 2021, it also includes a fantastic model of the Hubble Space Telescope, which is such a wonderful bonus!
This model is absolutely awesome and looks just so authentic in detail and will go with my other models that LEGO has brought out over the last two years…WooHoo!

Way to go LEGO, how remarkable would it be if you could make a model of the Mars Rovers Curiosity or Perseverance or better still, a model of the incredible Ingenuity helicopter that’s currently in flight on the red planet :-)
