    Dragon's space models are getting more and more exciting for modelers. This is demonstrated by the newest 1/400 scale item – the Space Shuttle Discovery mounted on a massive Crawler-Transporter. The idea behind this enormous vehicle was to transfer space rockets and Space Shuttles from NASA's Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) to the launch complex at the Kennedy Space Center, a distance of some 5.6km. Two such vehicles were produced, and they were the world’s largest tracked vehicles when built. The Transporter-Crawler measures 40m long, 35m wide and 7.9m high. Its weight comes in at a staggering 2,721 tonnes! Space vehicles are carried aboard the Mobile Launcher Platform (MLP). With a maximum velocity of 1.6km/h and driving team of nearly 30 people.

    Built to 1/400 scale, the entire assembly of the Shuttle Discovery (with attached External Tank and two Solid Rocket Boosters) plus the MLP and Tractor-Crawler are produced in minute detail. Fine details such as the track links on the four tractors are all perfectly replicated. Even areas that are hidden (e.g. the inside surface of the MLP) are all fully furnished and painted. Discovery had the honor of conducting more flights than any other Shuttle – 39 missions spread over 27 years – and this astonishing Space Collection model from Dragon Wings is the perfect way to commemorate its accomplishments.
