This particular vehicle was a modified 1983 Airstream Excella motorhome which has been in use since the STS-9 mission in 1983.
It was the vehicle used at the Kennedy Space Center to transport astronauts to the launch pad prior to a launch mission. The vehicle was also a mode of transportation to bring the crew back to Operations and Checkout Building after a Shuttle has landed.
This awesome build reminds us of Lia Chan’s mind-blowing LEGO MOC Kennedy Space Center Launch Complex 39A. If only Chan’s set is an official set… if only… But seriously, both Jeno1 and Chan should come together to get a photo shoot done. That will be awesome, innit?
