LL927 Solar System Commander

Classic Space Maths: 6980+6952+1979=927. LL927 combines the functions of  6980 Galaxy Commander and 6952 Solar Power Transporter with the style of 1979.

I’ve had the idea to build a Galaxy Commander in classic 1979 style for quite a while. I even have a finished LDD file for such a spaceship on MOCpages since 2013.

I came back to the idea some weeks ago when I thought about another spaceship to transport 16x8x8 Space Cargo Units (SCUs). The Galaxy Commander already carries a station module and my 1979 version of the Solar Power Transporter has an SCU station module as it’s middle section.

So I came up with the idea of a frame similar to the one from the Galaxy Commander and to connect the parts of my “1979” Solar Power Transporter to it. This is the result.

– “Rover to Hab. We’ve found the cargo at the drop zone”
– “That should be the upgrade they have promised for this month.”
– “You are right! We’ll come for you and the Hab.”

– “Hey guys, that thing is cool, isn’t it?”
– “I like it! Let’s see if it works as shown in the manual.”

– “This should be the right place for the couplings.”
– “OK, we’ll bring you this one!”

– “The coupling is fixed.”
– “The wings look good, too.”

– “Second coupling – Check!”
– “And now the first cockpit”

– “We are almost done with the wings, here.”
– “The SCU couplings for the Hub look good, too.
We’ll go inside, now”.
– “Roger. We’ll lock it. See you at the base.”

– “Everything locked!”
– “Roger. Closing roof hatches”

– “And lift off!”
– “LL927 is on the way to Moon Base 1”

– “It’s great that we don’t need an extra carrier, any more!”
– “You are right.
I think, we’ll have a few beers tonight at Moon Base 1″
– “Oh, yeah!”

So, this is LL927, a combination of Lego Classic Space 6980 Galaxy Commander and 6952 Solar Power Transporter in 1979 design.
I hope you like it!

Right now it’s my favourite Classic Space model in my collection. There are so many possibilities to combine the sections and play around with them, even as an AFOL… :-))

If you want to build your own one, feel free to download the LDD LXF file.

LL918m Space Transport (918 Mod)

A new set of wings for LL918 with a very popular shape.

LL918m is just a little mod of LL918 with a new wing section. It’s more of a coincidence than a planned design. I wanted to build a scooter or a small spaceship with the wing shape of LL928 in half scale.

I started building a little version of LL928 with an open 4-wide cockpit in LDD, but wasn’t really satisfied with it. So I built the wing section with real bricks just to see which ideas I would get during the building process with real bricks. Suddenly I realized that the new wings had almost the same size and shape as the wings from LL918.

So I just built the rest of my existing LL918 around them. This is the result.

The new wing shape.

LL928m with its “big brother”. Looks cool for me ;-))

So this is my Lego Classic Space LL918 Mod LL918m with a half scale LL928 wing shape.

I hope you like it! :-))
