Space Shuttle Orbiter Collection in 1/144 scale - Model Signed by 6 Astronauts


TRULY ONE OF A KIND! EACH ORBITER IS SIGNED BY AN ASTRONAUT THAT WAS ON ONE OR MISSIONS OF AN ORBITER! WHEN ALL 6 WERE SIGNED AND I WAS TRYING TO LEAVE THE SHOW, I WAS STOPPED BY A SMALL MOB, INCLUDING A  NASA ENGINEER, THAT WANTED TO TALK ABOUT IT. EVEN SEVERAL OF THE ASTRONAUTS DID NOT KNOW THIS MODEL EXISTED AND WHERE I GOT IT...NOW, IT CAN BE YOURS!
