Some interesting facts about your Convair Space Shuttle Craft: On the box it says Transports personnel between earth and space satellite!

Please remember that this was written in 1959 before any satellites were sent into space.

When the first Earth satellites are established they will be relatively small. For this reason, it will be necessary to replenish supplies and change personnel at frequent intervals, and it is for this purpose that Krafft Ehricke designed this spacecraft. Krafft Ehricke is assistant to the Technical Director of the Astronautics Division of Convair. He was born in Germany in 1917 and after a formal education that led to various degrees in engineering, he became active in the German rocket program. With the defeat of Germany in World War II, Mr. Ehricke along with many other top missile specialists, came to the United States and continued the work in the field of missile and space research. He became a United States citizen in 1954. The Shuttle Craft has an overall height of 130 ft, a main stage diameter of 20 ft, and a wingspan of about 51 ft. The fins on the main stage spread nearly 60 ft.
Soaring upward on the first leg of its journey to an orbital satellite, the Shuttle Craft would be boosted by powerful liquid fueled engines. At appropriate times, the first and second stages would be dropped off, leaving the third, or winged passenger stage, to intercept the orbiting satellite. The third stage carries a pilot and four passengers, and after transferring the cargo to the satellite, and picking up the return trip crew, returns to earth. Designed to withstand the tremendous heat of re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere, the third stage will be constructed of special heat resistant material and will re-enter the atmosphere as a glider. The rocket engines will probably be used in the final stages of landing approach, and it is expected that the landing speed will be about the same as a present-day jet airliner.

What are pre-orders?
Pre-orders are as the name suggests, placing an advanced pre-release order on an item. This means that the order you are placing is for the future release of a product that has yet to be released, or re-stocked.

How much are pre-orders?
Pre-order prices are defined at the time based off what we initially received from the manufacturer. This means that when we receive the product (to send to you), manufacturing costs, taxes, and even economic shifts in the country of the manufacturer, could affect the final price when we receive it in store. So, we suggest you use the price shown only as a point of reference, as it may not be derivative of the final price when it is received and ready to be sent to you.

How long do I have to wait for my pre-order?
The wait time depends on the release date of the pre-order product, and the time you placed your order. Pre-order release times also vary per product, per manufacturer, transportation and many other factors. If a release date is given from the manufacturer, please note that this is still subjective due to circumstances out of our control, and this isn’t indicative of our in-store stock date this could be a day or two after the release date.

Why am I being charged for my pre-order, even though the product isnt released yet?
This is pre-payment for an item's payment and delivery costs that isn’t released yet (pre-order) to ensure as soon as it arrives your order can be fulfilled and sent out to you a.s.a.p. Not all orders will be charged shipping depending on size, and total order amount (see our website for current shipping to find out more and our shipping policy for more information).
