The Advanced Medium Poly transport version of this medium poly count 3d model includes the exterior of the space shuttle orbiter and the aerodynamic surface model of the spacecraft, tank, and boosters. It includes the spacecraft payload bay and cargo bay doors animated to open. It includes animateable landing gear, elevons, rudder. The model is fully textured and built very near to scale. It includes the exterior of the space craft, engines, boat tail fairing and exterior model of the Boeing 747-100 transport aircraft. The Boeing 747-100 aircraft is also near to scale and includes animateable surfaces like flaps, ailerons, rudder and elevators, and animateable landing gear and landing gear doors. Textures are complete for both the spacecraft and the Boeing aircraft and the model is provided in 10 different formats. The shuttle program started in the late 1950s with design and development experiments. The program with the Space Shuttle orbiter lasted from the 1980s until the 2000s. It was a safe system with only two exceptions including the destruction of the vehicles and fatalities of the crews. The Space Shuttle program provided a reusable system for space flight that was historic in its implications, capabilities, and duration.
