NCS: Cosmic Cruiser Redux!

9 posts in this topic

My remake of the 6890 Cosmic Cruiser set from 1982.

Thanks ~ Lego Knight ~ for the background!

The Cosmic cruiser, although not the fastest starship in the federation, is a useful exploration and transportation vehicle. Its capable of low-altitude travel, and can deploy the pilot's seat as an X-5 Land speeder. As the Cosmic Cruiser is not primarily built for combat, it's equipped with only two front-tipped forward facing torpedo launchers. (I still haven't decided if the gadgets on the wing tips are weapons or antennas...)

The federation X-5 land speeder is great for space rides, enjoying the intergalactic scenery, or traveling throughout a star outpost. The federation discovered that if the back engine was switched off, they gave off a very low heat signature. Because of this, they made their first combat appearance on the raid on Spyrius IV deploying soldiers into enemy bases. They were also good for a fast getaway. Their biggest flaw, however, is that they can only fly for a limited time before needing to be charged while attached to the Cosmic Cruiser Federation Starship.

Holy smokes!

That's brilliant. I love the studless wings. So pretty :cry_happy:

I really liked the flag shaping on the canopy - neat trick!

The arch/span in the wings are super cool... but have you considered adding something in there? like some white greeble or something? It looks like it could add a little something?

BTW it's Lego Knight ;)

Could you post pics of the bottom side and pics showing how the speeder is attached, please?

This really does look very good. I would also be interested in seeing a bottom side view of this ship.

Not a lot to see in the underside as the speeder hooks on in the inside. Might be able to post some underbelly pics later this week though.

Cheers,

Jasbury
