Default cc: SST Shuttle-1

Title: cc: SST Shuttle-1

Kit number: KCC-1

Background Information brief: The SST Shuttle-I was introduced in the 1971 Centuri catalog. At the time, NASA was busy with several concepts that could place several tons in earth orbit and return to land at a conventional airstrip and reuse the craft in a short time. This model was based on one of those proposals. It was also the Centuri response to the highly popular Estes Orbital Transport. The SST Shuttle-I was released as Catalog #KC-17 and had an introductory price of $4.00. The SST Shuttle-I was a very popular model having a production run of over ten years. It was listed as a skill level 5 kit, requiring expert modeling skills.
The cc: SST Shuttle-I is a very close approximation of the original kit. Laser-cut fins are provided using the original patterns as models. The hinges are made of a more durable plastic adhesive instead of the original paper. Kevlar and elastic replace the original rubber shock cord.
Plans are not provided in this kit but they are available are online at https://www.spacemodeling.org/jimz/centuri/kc-17.pdf thanks to the tireless efforts of Jim Zalewski and the generosity of Estes Industries in allowing him to help preserve the past

Designer: Centuri

Release Date: 07/27/2005

In Production: 2005-2014
