List of models of rockets, spacecrafts and probes

Recommended Posts

I tried to create a list of MOCs that are based on real rockets, spacecrafts or probes (or at least designs of planned real rockets, spacecrafts or probes) with instructions, either free or for money. The list was growing and growing and now it is far greater than I expected:

https://kaerodot.gitlab.io/lego-rocket-mocs/

Due to the nature of the universe, this list will never be complete and perfect, so please contact me with ideas for improvements and additions. If you are offended and you do not want your work to be included in the list, please contact me also.

Tables can be sorted by clicking on the heading.

Some statistics: there are instructions for:

  • 97 different rocket and spacesihp MOCs, of this: 5 different MOCs of Spacex falcon 9; 3 Spacex falcon heavy; 6 saturn 1B; 3 Soyuz rockets; 3 V2; 
  • additional 52 different MOCs of spaceprobes;
  • additional 26 launchpads, launch complexes, drone ships etc.

If you want to build  e.g. mercury rocket, you can just select by the pictures.

Hey, thanks for including my models and taking the time to compile this whole list! (I'm MuscoviteSandwich BTW, I still need to get my level up to ask for a name change since I made this EB account years ago but forgot about it) Just a couple of suggestions for improvements concerning my mocs:

  • The notes and photo for my midi Saturn V are wrong. I think the notes are miscopied from another entry since I've released only one version. The photo looks like it's just the reference drawing that I always include on my instruction covers. You are totally welcome to take photos from my Flickr as well and  I would recommend one of the pictures like this one that shows the midi one next to the official one. Also, after looking at all the other mini  Sat V models, I decided to rename it the "Midi Saturn V"  (as opposed to "mini") to better reflect its slightly larger size.\
  • The "Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity/Spirit" and "Opportunity Rover" are the same model. I posted the "Opportunity model" with some hastily made instructions on Reddit first (smazmats is my Reddit username) and Improved everything at a later date. I would recommend removing "Opportunity Rover" since its just an early draft of the improved one and to avoid confusion.

Thanks a lot for making this list.  There are all sorts of great things to build here if I can ever find the time!

Thanks for this! As for 10213 and 10231, they are both modeled on the NASA space shuttle orbiter, but they aren't branded NASA and don't correspond to any of the six actual orbiter names. Nor do they seem to suggest any particular STS mission.

The difference of 27 parts, I hear, was to make the model more sturdy, I think with some technic connections. I would say they definitely count.

Hey, thanks a lot for info! I will fix during next evenings. I will rename saturn, take a better photo, and fix the rovers. I wondered that these two rovers are too similar, but different nick - different row of table. However the main question remain - which nick to use? Muscovitesandwich & smazmat should be renamed to Black-Brick? Is it correct?

And thanks for the Delta II with tower, I would like to build it.

Thanks, I think I will add them to the table, just for reference. At least a lot of pieces were used in shuttle MOCs.

Just use "MuscoviteSandwich" so it's consistent with my Flickr and Rebrickable. Once I hit Vassal I'm changing Black-Brick to MuscoviteSandwich as well.

Page with list was updated. I know I miss some other Launch Umbilical Tower designs, but these eludes me somehow.

Hi, is the list offline? Link is not working for me.

Cheers

It is working now. I have no idea what happened, maybe some error on the hosting server.

I have added many projects from Bricklink. Still many projects on Bricklink are missing.

List was substantially enlarged (Bricklink almost finished) and improved thanks to the informations of MoppeW40k.

Actual status:

about 148 rockets, 78 payloads, 34 launchpads/other.

The last missing large LEGO web is MOCpages, however it seems people do not put instructions there.

Many thanks for all the time you’ve put in arranging this list. I was aware of perhaps two thirds of the list but, my god, it took me many hours to find them. This is a wonderful resource. 
The hopes I’d had that the 1:110 scale would proliferate as a standard for rockets after the Ideas Saturn V was announced have come true.

Certainly many builders selected the 1:110 scale. But I have heard from few that usually it is better to make an arbitrary scale to better fit actual size of various lego cylinders.

If you will find something that I missed, just let me know, I will add it.

Thanks for the link! Another N1, and I still have to add a 1:110 one from Wolfram Broszies. Not much time for this in last 2 months.

So now there are instructions for 3 different builds of N1 rockets.

I have added many models and a lot of fixes, additions of links etc. The tables are quite long now, not sure how to do it better.

Another bunch of updates. There is comparison for A4, Space shuttles, launch umilical towers (5 of them! hi-res picture!), soyuz, and nice picture of Energia family.

As usually, many updates, and good news everyone: third volume of Bricks in space book is online! (And second volume is updated).

Updates. Now the list contains over 450 space MOCs with instructions! I never expected there will be such amount of models (I would not start compiling this list if I knew it).

Kaero, could you poke at Allan Jordan and tell him that Buran do not have any protrusions on the aft end, as his model does.

The aft Orbital Maneuvering System

http://www.buran.ru/images/jpg/bbur169.jpg and http://www.buran.ru/images/jpg/bbur65.jpg

This video shows those on a ground test. First part of video

Or you can download his model and improve it :)
Or you can poke him yourself. He is active at facebook group Bricks in Space (for link see the list).

I know the Bricks in Space, I check it regularly :)

And no, I will not get a FB profile, DW has tried to get me to make a FB profile too.

If there would be a forum for this space stuff, then that would be more interesting.

I am planning to modify my version of KingsKnight Space Shuttle to a Buran. The design, not the model I have built.

But that is after I have assembled the MLP-1, I have redesigned from Valerie Roche's and Greg Kremer's Mobile Launcher, And KingsKnight's service towers, with only 1 of the towers slightly modified.

LDD to instructions, is not working for this MLP-1. I have had the parts since late last year, but someday I'll build it together.
