Orion III Space Shuttle refurb.
June 22, 2016 in Sci-fi
This is Aurora’s space clipper Orion from 2001 Space Odyssey. it’s a1975 issue. Another one I couldn’t get rid of. I was originally going to refurb it sitting on top of a Saturn booster, that’s how the story in the instructions said it was launched but in the book it launched on top of a mother ship that returns to earth, in the movie its never addressed. So just did the Orion. Rattle can white, homemade decals, and a new paint job in the engine bay. It’s to bad that we’ve never reached the movie’s portrayed technologies.
