A 1979 version of the Classic Space 6952 Solar Power Transporter from 1985, including a middle section with a small transportable base.
This was my “bigger” space project I have been working on the last few months. 6952 has always been one of my favorite Classic Space sets of all time. I always wanted one (my cousin had one), but have never bought one (Hey that’s a good idea for Christmas…). So I thought about it and how it might have looked as a 1979 set (still my favourite CS era).
The design process (with LDD as usual) already took it’s time until I had the final idea for the middle section. The building process instead didn’t take much time, as I already had most of the needed parts in my CS parts collection.
First thing first – These are my two little Vic Vipers that I’ve already posted for NNoVVember 2017:
The Vipers remain unchanged. They only wear two additional truck wheels underneath their rear wings. The first designs of the scout ships had a single “nose” and no single tail fin. But when I thought about a Vic Viper for NnoVVember 2017 I thought that they would look really cool with these two design elements.
And now it’s time for the middle section:
This is only a small modification of my Transportable Base posted in January this year. I’ve added four foldable “feet” in the corners, two foldable supports underneath and two centre “feet” to fix two wheels.
A little modification of the doors*, two extra 1×4 Technic bricks on the side, and that’s it…
* Oops, there is a 1×2 inverted slope missing on the left side (must have been my son). I didn’t notice that when I took the pictures – Too late now! ;-))
The complete vehicle:
I hope you like it :-))
