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… :-))
