    Hey bro, the space shuttle is 1466 inches long. To find the scale to be compatible with Dreadwing, divide Dreadwing's length into 1466. My Dreadwing is disassembled right now :ev:  , so I can't measure it:D  . It's approximately 7 inches long, so that would mean you need a shuttle kit roughly 1/209 scale. Obviously they don't make one that scale, but you get the idea! Sounds like a real challenge of a bash, I wish you the best of good fortune, I know ya can do it!:thumbs2:

    It looks like you've gotten some really good advice from the other Radicons on the scale of the base model and such. I'll just my two cents about the custom: make Blast-off! After you do that, make the rest of the bunch! :)
