This video shows off the space shuttle I built in Minecraft Classic.

I was searching around for a project idea and when I looked for space shuttles I only found some that were built to scale (and so not that large or detailed). Personally, I believe that the mantra "bigger is better" holds true for Minecraft, so I set out to construct a much larger and more detailed space shuttle.

The shuttle consists of two solid rocket boosters (I constructed one and then copied it over to the other side), an external fuel tank, and the orbiter (shuttle). The entire complex was originally built in Minecraft Classic on the server Snowey's Freebuild. Overall build time was roughly one week.

Snowey's Freebuild no longer hosts Classic multiplayer. This build, along with all of my other creations, may now be viewed on Aaron1tasker's Ownworld.

FAQ:

How long did it take to build?
Roughly a week and a half.

Can I download the map?
Yes you can: http://adf.ly/LlI70

How big is it?
The solid rocket boosters have a maximum diameter of 28 near the bottom (18 for the majority of it) and a height of 204. The external fuel tank has a maximum diameter of 32 and a height of 190. The shuttle itself has a wingspan of 106, a height of 162, and a depth of 46.

Why don't you have lava pour out of the engines?
I prefer having the engines visible rather than obscured with molten rock.

Why don't you fly it with the Zeppelin Mod?
It's too big.

Will it blend?
Probably not.

Why is this in Classic? Don't you have Beta?
Yes I have beta, but there's a 128 block vertical limit in beta which gets in the way of some of the larger builds.

How do you fly?
WoM client. Google it.

What's the song?
Golden Reverie - Sunset. Inspired by Seananner's "Why So Serious?" commentary, viewable here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7952-...

Issues that have been noted:
-Undersized fuel tank
