This model shows the Space Shuttle in its final configuration, from the late 1990s onward. The earlier paint scheme on the wings and body was revised, and the round NASA "meatball" logo replaced the curvy NASA "worm" logo. The model depicts the orbiter, external tank, and solid rocket boosters mated for launch. One of the Museum's docents donated this model for display after receiving it on a business visit to the external tank production facility.
