Space Shuttle External Tank - an appreciation



Just bought 2 of the Airfix Space Shuttle and Boosters kits for an upcoming project (will announce that when i've a few more parts and know its a viable venture).
Built the bigger Shuttle before but never the one with the Boosters so its the first time i've seen this, which i need for that maybe project, the External Tank.
Wow.
Just built like this, there's something about its dimensions and the detail that's just so cool.
Can see why its a staple of a lot of SF builds, no more so than here it is here, in probably the most extreme form, the Engine Room from "Alien".
