Overseas shipping is not available and I don't know if it will be. You might want to email them. They're looking into it - at least regarding my query.

Those are great models. I've been a LEGO fan since the early 60s.

The models are built with LEGO Digital Designer software, so I'm going to ask if they can send me the original files. That way, I can order the bricks separately, which is usually much cheaper than buying the complete package. Meanwhile, I'll try to recreate them using the building instructions.

Incidentally, the link to the DSP model instructions doesn't work, so I've alerted them. Hopefully they'll get it fixed quickly.

UPDATE - I've already had a reply, and the link will be fixed once the team returns from KSC during the week.

Now, if someone can make the Lego DSP and space shuttle in the same scale...
