      Interesting question! This is my take:
      * Enterprise as during the early glide tests with the white, rather than
      black, areas around the cockpit windows. I would probably model it with the
      tail fairing in landing config. or on the 747.
      * Columbia as on STS-1 with the white painted ET. Second choice would be
      STS-61C with the pod on the fin.
      * Challenger as on her last flight as a stack.
      * Discovery in orbit.
      * Atlantis in landing config with weathering (reentry effects).
      * Endeavor as the latest orbiter, in the current config as a stack, with
      the drag chute and latest markings.
