Columbia at Edwards


Dave says this about his model: I bought a Revell/Monogram 1/72 shuttle and used the optional landing gear. Using a plywood base I sprayed it with adhesive and added model railroad sand for the runway. The shrubs in the foreground are also borrowed from model railroading (fake lichen). Dental floss was used to support the model and then airbrushed out later. The background and sky were also computer generated. The photo was taken using a digital camera so the resolution is not great. I think the effect turned out well though.
