With awesome kits like the Saturn V rocket and the Apollo 11 lunar lander, LEGO continues to give space geeks reasons to bust out their wallets. Now, thanks to a great design concept submitted by a LEGO Ideas contributor, we’re about to get another sweet LEGO space model.

Based on a design by Christophe Ruge (aka “XCLD”), this amazing LEGO creation lets you build a detailed model of the International Space Station.

The 864-piece kit (set number 21321) includes the ISS’ working laboratory and living quarters at its center, surrounded by eight double solar panel arrays, each of which can be tilted. It also comes with a miniature space shuttle that can be docked with the ISS, as well as a satellite that attaches to a robotic arm.

The finished model measures 19″ wide x 12″ long x 7″ high, and includes a display stand – which is essential give the space station’s unwieldy shape. Since this thing isn’t minifig scale, it comes with two tiny “microfigure” astronauts, so you can send them on a spacewalk around the station. It also comes with a 148-page booklet about the ISS, and the designer of the model.

Best of all, LEGO isn’t making us break the bank for this kit. It’s reasonably-priced at just $69.99. It goes on sale on February 1, 2020 on the LEGO website and at LEGO stores, so you won’t have to wait long to add this to your collection.
