Classic Space Transportable Rover

Febrovery 2017: A Generation 1 Classic Space Rover designed for maximum mobility.

I’ve always thought that the original Rover from the 928 Galaxy Explorer set was cool, but far to small to be as cool as LL928 itself. So the task For Febrovery was just that: Build a Rover with maximum size and coolness but still small enough for LL928’s cargo bay. And to get the real look only bricks available in 1979 should be used.

This is the result.file-ea65468e-9154-45cf-a0a6-b1f8cee9d14d-5944-000008a2cd9d2055

The Pickup bed of the Rover works as a transport pallet which can be moved with a forklifter.
