Hi everybody, as I wrote on the presentation sub-forum, here is my best and newest MOC.

It is the space shuttle crawler transporter with the launch complex tower.

Please find here some pictures:

Great work! I started building a crawler for my shuttle over the summer. It's not as nice as yours. :classic:

About time someone made one of these! I myself tried to make one of these on LDD shortly after the Shuttle Adventure came out, but I quickly gave up and just hoped someone else would make one. And suddenly, here's yours!

Love the level of detail. Now all I need to do is find a way to make a Shuttle Carrier Aircraft for either the Adventure or the new 2011 shuttle...

Very nice :thumbup:. I love how its so big. Does it have pf?

Up to now it has no pf, but my project is to motorize it, but I think I need sevral motors, maybe 2 XL or 4 M motor.

Anyhow if I'll upgrade it with motors I'll post a video!

Really well thought out and realized.

OMG !

First we see, the AWESOME transporter.....then the launch pad.....jaw drops ! *oh2*

A totally AWESOME design with mega detail 'Teazza', you have built an original creation that I feel many will want to copy for maybe even the new city space shuttle.

I'm a conformist! 'Tezza' I'm a conformist! ! :sweet:

This is simply stunning! Looks even better the first time I saw it in your Intro topic. My hats off to you Teazza for this magnificent massive creation. default_thumbup.gif This is one of those builds that TLG will not make and we have skilled builders like you to thank for to be able to see how a real brickbuild crawler transporter and launch complex looks like.

Teazza: this is quite impressive. Thank you for sharing.

We do have an image size limit of 800x600 here on EB though. I would appreciate if you could resize your images. Much appreciated.

Holy jeeza Teazza!! That is very impressive work! :thumbup: That thing looks massive. I wish I had the tracks to put on a realistic MOC crawler.

This is a great MOC! I reall like the crawler! For it's scale it looks very realistic and very close to the real thing. Also the servicing tower is great, but I think it still has some room for improvment! Go on :thumbup:, looking forward to see the completed center.

One remark though, there should be some holes in the platform to allow the exhaust gases exit.

With the new City space sets out, you've got them a perfect home, now, just build the computer room and the other stuff that helps the spaceship from earth, stick a couple of fireworks in the bottom of that shuttle and you'd have your own multi dollar (:grin:)space programme. :laugh::grin:

Unbelievable huge and massive MOC! :oh:

I love the launch platform but the crawler transport leave me speechless... great details and playability!!! :wub:

I wonder how many pieces have you used *oh2*

If it had the hole in the center, the crawler transporter would be perfect: way better than I could ever do. The launch complex is a little less impressive IMO, but only because I don't really like how the colors are arranged. A more purely red structure with gray and white accents (for walkways and the like) would please me a lot better. It's wonderfully accurate, though.

It has! I modified it in the last week, now there's the center hole as in the real one.

I hope to put new pictures in the next weeks.

To. Die. For. *oh2*

Reminds me of Crawler Town by DeGobbi, but at least this is realistic. I forgot that there was such a vehicle in real life!
