My NCS Series Remastered :)

Recommended Posts

[NCS] 886 - Space Buggy, Remastered

It is my chassis from [NCS] 6802 - Space Probe by changing the rear of the vehicle. Rear with articulated arm, 2 fire extinguishers, ore box, articulated arm control panel, 1 spaceman's hand tools, one antenna, 1 airtank. Front of the buggy with camera, sensors, binoculars, 2 walkie-talkies, a mini-satellite-antenna and control panel.

[NCS] 6842 - Shuttle Craft, Remastered
A small remastered 6842-Shuttle Craft. Walkie-talkie, camera/weapon (depending on). On the Shuttle : reactors, engines, jet turbine, cannons, 4 front sensors, radiators, small antenna, 2 horizontal ailerons, 2 vertical ailerons, lifters, steering nozzle, rear computer control panel. Basically, I took a bit of inspiration from the Speeders of the Meta-Universe from Starwars.

[NCS] 462-897- Mobile Rocket Launcher, Remastered

The Mythic 462-897 Mobile Rocket Launcher set was too small, so ... I remastered it in 2020 version. I had some difficulty with the Rocket, because I didn't want to use round bricks. I wanted something more elegant with cool building techniques. So I remade the rocket entirely in brickbuild. Ditto for the radar. In short, a little technical originality. I didn't want to be conventional. I used the elements of my old constructions to keep it homogeneous. The radar cockpit rotates 360°, and the radar itself also rotates, 360°. The radar cockpit is quite worked with control screens everywhere, as well as small joysticks. A walkie-talkie, a hammer and an adjustable wrench hang on it.
I retake :
- The chassis of my [NCS] 6802-Space Probe Remastered
- The radar of my [NCS] 452-894-Mobile Tracking Station, Remastered

The goal is to remain homogeneous in the architecture. Which is sometimes not an easy task. All the blocks are interchangeable, between all my creations. It's Modular, on a vehicle scale.

Details of the rocket. Use of modified brick, by turning them 45 ° in the central body of the rocket, in order to build it "in hexagon"

[NCS] 6901 - Mobile Lab, Remastered

Always in the spirit of keeping modules of old constructions to reuse them. Just to swap modules, to make another MOC. Maximum standardization.
The forward cockpit contains 2 repair utensils. It opens through doors on the side or through the central canopy. It is a resumption of the cockpit of the "1580 Lunar Scout, Remastered", by adding 2 ladders, and by rotating the roof sensors 180 °. The aft cockpit opens by rotating the canopy, or through the roof by eclipsing the radar. It contains 2 levers and 3 control panels which are in height. The chassis is also a recovery.
An excavator entirely made in brickbuild. I did not find any existing parts, adapted to the scale of the vehicle, so a brickbuild is needed :)

Well, I'm pretty happy with the look. I was worried that with my history of taking modules from other builds, it would result in a lousy mobile lab. Overall, "no". I had to be inventive on the rear 4x6 module block part. Once the seat and the astronaut were installed, I found myself stuck putting screens on him! And worse, not being able to get it out of the cockpit, lol -nb.gif
Yeah, that's bad!
Even blowing up the radar which is made up of 2 modular blocks, there was really little room. in fact, I had it kinda on my own, absolutely wanting a seat, which made it worse in a minimalist space.
My neurons have overheated! -mf_prop.gif-mf_prop.gif-mf_prop.gif

Hence the idea of putting a canopy at an angle, from the top, to gain length space to take out the spaceman, but also to put control panels on the ceiling. And in fact, without wanting to, I took again in a different form, the horizontal rear opening of the 2 doors of the original 6901, but in a single vertical one at the rear.

[MOC] [NCS] 6802 Space Probe, Remastered

Bigger on a Buggy chassis with double probes. The robot deserved a 2020 update. :)

[NCS] 1580 Lunar Scout Remastered

I kept the structures of my old creations, to remain homogeneous, and above all to make it "modular". The goal is to make all of my vehicles modular, and interchange the components between vehicles, to rebuild them as they see fit.
Structure of the articulated Mini-arm found in, my [NCS] 6841 - Heavy Mineral Detector, Remastered
Structure of the bumpers, which can be found [NCS] 452-894 - Mobile Tracking Station, Remastered
I put a mini articulated arm at the back, in addition to the 2 mineral containers. The canopy is not green, because I will take over the cockpit structure for another construction. I couldn't put the chassis as low as the original, but overall I stayed in the "spirit" of the little scout utility vehicle.

[NCS] 6841 - Heavy Mineral Detector Remastered

I continue my series. I feel hot and boiling there! ☢️ A little Classic-space 6841 Mineral Detector Remastered, only bigger. I have tried to stay true to the functionality and structure of the original. Then added in all directions: Mini-articulated arm at the back, box to store minerals, box to crush minerals and analyze them, communication antenna, walkie-talkies, various small radars / cameras / front detectors at the front of the vehicle, small rock hammer, hand detector (which can be hung on the mini articulated arm) and various control panels.

[NCS] 452-894 - Mobile Tracking Station, Remastered

Functional quality, of course :). Radar in tow that turns in all directions. The 2 small folding jacks when the trailer is unhooked. (A radar not horizontal, when the trailer tilts, it works much less well!)
Radar on the roof of the vehicle which rotates 360 °. I really thoroughly styled this 2nd radar with sensors everywhere and tried to keep "the best spirit" with the 2 round transparent things.

So gooood! :wub_drool:

I've been keeping a close eye on your wonderful reworks of the old sets, and to see them all together is a great display of your creative part usage and curvature. You did a fantastic job keeping the old feel for the sets while still incorporating all the new pieces. By far my favorites are the 6842 and 452 reworks, they look stunning. Your scale increase is right on. Also, got to love the fact you included the orange spaceman.

Do you plan make any of them in brick?

I continue my series

[NCS] 889 - Radar Truck, Remastered

I took the chassis of the [NCS] 6802 - Space Probe by putting a radar, that I used in several construction.
