I have these taken when I visited Andy awhile back. It's a lovely model and I am jealous as sin with wanting it.

Bernie.

Hi Ken,
As regards one of the engines, yes in those photos it only had one, this was because when I was taking it out of the box for Bernie, one fell off, and didn't have time to put it back on, this happens quite often as the engines are made from quite thin plasticard, all back together now though.
There's more detail at the back that you never saw on screen.
I'll take some photos tomorrow in the daylight
It never had/has a name, just the shuttle.

The really interesting thing about this model is that it was the model that Ron Thornton made to enter BBC Visual Effects Department.
Ron even used the shape in Babylon 5, as again a shuttle.
If you look at the design, it has definite look and detail of the Scorpio (which he went on to make).
