Detailed Space Shuttle Papercraft
You would be hard pressed to find a more detailed papercraft space shuttle than this one. In addition to a "generic" space shuttle model, Italian designer Raimondo Fortezza has also created templates for each of the specific shuttles including Endeavour, Atlantis, Discovery, Challenger, and Columbia. The Atlantis model shown in the build photo above is the work of David Hanners who enlarged the original template slightly from 1:100 scale to 1:96 scale. Fortezza's shuttle templates are available for download at the Marscenter website here. Also available at the website are templates for detailed models of the International Space Station, Soyuz and other space exploration related models.
