Save 15% when buying all the Shuttle Derived Vehicle (SDV) building instructions by saxus at once! All 3 models are very detailed and scale-accurate in everything from the exterior dimensions to details, and they're all built at 1:110 scale, the same scale as the official LEGO® Saturn V set!

This bundle features 3 separate products:

  • Space Launch System (SLS)
  • Ares I & I-X
  • Ares V

The digital building instructions you'll receive with your purchase are high-quality and easy to follow, even for less experienced builders. However, the sheer size some of the models and some building techniques might be a bit challenging for new builders.

Learn more about the Shuttle Derived Launch Vehicles:

Shuttle-derived vehicles (SDV) is the denomination given to launch vehicles and spacecraft that use components, technology, and infrastructure originally developed for the Space Shuttle program.

Ares I and Ares V were developed by NASA as part of the Constellation program, which was formed in response to the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster. Consequently, the program had a special emphasis on crew safety with the major goals of returning to the Moon and ultimately land humans on Mars.

The Constellation program was cancelled in 2010 due to rising costs and to replace the cancelled concepts, NASA began development of the Space Launch System (SLS) which shares higher hardware commonality with the Space Shuttle program than the Ares launch vehicles.

Thank you for checking out saxus collection and if you are considering buying the instructions we are especially grateful to you for supporting our work and directly enabling us to continue producing more designs in the future!

How to buy the bricks

I recommend buying the pieces required for the model through, which is the largest online marketplace for LEGO® parts sellers.

There are other alternatives, like the official LEGO® Pick a Brick site, but they rarely have all the required pieces and it's often more expensive there.

The process to buy from Bricklink is easier than it seems, and is explained thoroughly in this step-by-step guide to help you:

  1. After buying the product, you need to download the folder named "Part lists" and unzip it.
  2. Choose the part lists you want to buy using the guide in the "Variants" tab below.
  3. Next go to and create an account, it's very easy to set up.
  4. Hover over the "Want" tab in the top right corner and click "Upload" or follow this LINK.
  5. Click on the right "Upload BrickLink XML format" tab and copy and paste the text from your chosen parts list to the text box. You can "Add to" the default wanted list or a new one it from future orders. Either way, upload all the current part lists to the same wanted list to order all the pieces at the same time. Then click the blue "Proceed to verify items" button.
    Repeat step 4-5 for each part list you want to order.
  6. Optional step if you want to save some money: In the wanted list, you can sort by colors and select all the internal pieces (described in "Product specifications" above) and click on "Color" and apply "Non applicable" since all those colors can be substituted without affecting the exterior look.
  7. Optional step if you only want new pieces and as a consequence pay a little bit more: Select all the pieces and change their "Condition" to "New" (needs to be repeated for each page). The default option gives you a price around the estimate and will include both new and used bricks.
  8. Next click the green "Buy All" button and then adjust the settings to your preference. For lower shipping costs, I recommend beginning by choosing your region/country first and only change it if the pieces aren't available there.
  9. Once that's done, click the blue "Auto-select" button, uncheck the box in the pop-up and click "Start".
  10. This will give you a list of stores whose orders together will include all of the pieces in your wanted list. Confirm that all the pieces are included by clicking the "Wanted Items" tab to the left and control that there aren't any pieces left there.
  11. If you are happy with the selection and price, click "Create carts", followed by "Checkout" for each individual store and buy the pieces!
    (If you are not happy with the price or if you're missing any pieces, you can click "Remove All" and redo the auto-selection with different settings)

If you're having any issues with ordering your pieces, don't hesitate to send us a message through the "Contact us" tab in the menu and we'll do out best to help!
