Scale Model Drawing Package
These drawings are intended to be a guide for building a model of the International Space Station. The drawings provide the overall dimensions for all of the major elements as it was originally designed. Some of the elements will not be part of the ISS as foreseen now
Dimensions are given for a 1:100 scale model. These dimensions can easily be adapted for any scale you desire. For example, for a 1:200 scale model, divide the dimensions by two. The original 1:100 scale is in inches. The choice of materials, as well as the method for connecting the elements together, have been left to the discretion of the modelmaker.
