[MOC] Galaxy Explorer - Alternate Build of 2 x 60430 Interstellar Spaceship

Recommended Posts

The 60430 Interstellar Spaceship is a very nice small ship made using wedges plates and wedge slopes. I personally find the openable flaps and claw-like engine nacelle a bit strange, but I admit they are a great play feature for kids.

I decided to combine 2 sets of 60430 to create a swooshable Galaxy Explorer, which is one of the most influential and coveted set Lego has ever made.

There is the dagger shaped fuselage with delta wings with a straight tailing edge, grille pieces on the nose leading to the two centerline windscreens and a bulky back with a horizontal stabilizer. There are 4 engines, 2 on the wings and 2 at the back, 6 studs long each. 

My spaceship can seat two astronauts, the horizontal stabilizer sits on 2 engines pods leaving a view for the back astronauts.

Nice alternate option. I'll admit the engine and speed brakes are more for the kids, but they do make it fun.
