Lego Master keeps busy during lockdown

Lego Master, Maurice York of Living Choice Glenhaven, has been spending his time in lockdown building a NASA Space Shuttle Discovery STS-31, and NASA Hubble Space Telescope.

For all you LEGO newbies, the LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery model building set is for adults. With 2,354 pieces, it is an engaging challenge that lets you build the Space Shuttle Discovery, plus the Hubble Space Telescope, that was launched during NASA’s STS-31 mission in 1990.

The model is interactive: open the payload bay to deploy the Hubble Telescope on its mission to explore the cosmos. Adjust the elevons, engage the landing gear on re-entry and deploy the robotic arm. The cockpit opens to reveal flight and mid-decks with seats for 5 crew members. The telescope features movable solar panels and an aperture door. The multiple display stands let you display the space shuttle model and telescope individually or together.

Sounds like fun, right? If you’ve created similar models, we’d love to see your work.
