Galaxy Explorer Redone

Postby legosammy » Thu Jan 26, 2012 1:39 am

I wanted to redo the Galaxy Explorer in that new city space port colour scheme and more sleek with all the same features. the mini rover is an altered http://shop.lego.com/en-CA/Space-Moon-Buggy-3365 because the original didn’t fit

I'm really liking the transition between the smaller front section and the wider back section.

Thank you for doing this, really. I really like the fins, but one thing I don't really care for is the interior-you might want some controls in the cockpit :P

This is terriffic! I of course immediately recognized the Galaxy Explorer, but the style reminds me of the shuttle from 2001. I could see this modified into a near-future passenger shuttle designed to ferry maybe 12 passengers to the moon (to discuss top secret alien artifacts discovered there, of course).

I love the playability you've got here. I'm not familiar with the inner workings of the Galaxy Explorer, but the opening compartments and rover are great. This has the feel of an actual playset, not just a model.

thanks
i used the original instructions from this site http://www.brickfactory.info/ to get all the features
i chose the 2011 city space port colour scheme because the logo looks like an updated :space:
