  1. With the re-release of the rather controversial and hard-to-get Ulysses space probe VIP award, I want to share an updated version of my own custom Ulysses space probe and IUS (Inertial upper stage) that fixes all the problems with the official set. It's now properly scaled to match the Discovery's 1:70 scale and has way more detail (ie: no more yellow!) that matches the real-life probe. I also added a proper display stand that mimics the style from 10283 so it looks cohesive when displayed alongside the shuttle. Additionally, like the Hubble space telescope, It can fit in the shuttle's cargo bay, but now there is much more room to spare! Here's a side by side comparison between it an the original VIP promo. I have no idea why they decided to make the set so fat! If anyone wants to make one for themselves and skip the scalpers, I did make instructions which are available on my rebrickable page for free! The whole thing is around 250 pcs, and I estimate the parts cost should be around $20-30 USD (plus shipping) on BL.

  3. This is a MOC I designed during spring 2020 and originally published in the Bricks in Space Facebook group (original post) and on the web page, but I want to publish it here as well. Inspired by all great 1:110 scaled space moc's in the Bricks in space group, I realized that there were no accurate scale model of the Space Shuttle's Launch Complex 39 so I decided to give it a try myself. During my research I found that there is basically no construction blueprints published for the Launch complex, making scale modeling very hard, but after much searching I managed to track down a demolision plan which accurately described the complex open frame structure and it measures. These plans gave me the opportunity to model the MOC with all major beams in the right place and get the model accurate in scale down to (most of the time) +/- one stud. To make sure that there was a Shuttle, MLP and crawler available to use together with the launch complex, the MOC is designed to match KingsKnight's excelent 1:110 scale Space shuttle and Eiffelman's Crawler transporter and Mobile Launch Platform. Together the four models form a nice display with almost 20000 pieces. About the MOC I’ve been aiming at the look the complex had around 1980 concerning colours and equipment level. The model consists of the Fixed Service Structure, the Rotating Service Structure, The WSC Tower and 9099 building, the Northern Pipe Bridge and the East access towers. Everything is placed on a base representing the top of the launch pad and flame trench. The FSS is inspired by Nathan Readioff's LUT and the Hammerhead crane on top is his design, which he kindly let me use in this model. The RSS was a really complicated thing to design. The open frame structure is hard to do in Lego and right now there is some weak spots in the design that must be resolved, especially the connection of the support legs and the main structure. There are a few angels there which is not easily handled with LEGO. But overall, I’m quite happy with the design, even if all the catwalks and staircases were driving me crazy for a while. The RSS will rotate around the hinging column just as it did in real life. This is still a work in progress. Whenever I get some time, I plan for doing two additional versions of this MOC. One 1990's version which will be gray and the orbiter weather protection system, hurricane lock, and other modifications, and one 2000's version without the hammerhead crane. We'll see when those will be ready. More pictures, .io-files and instructions can be found on the web page. I hope you like this model. Part count: 13672 bricks, 576 lots. Width: 92 cm, 36.2 inch, 115 studs Length: 115.2 cm, 45.4 inch, 144 studs Height: 97.8 cm, 38.5 inch, 122.2 studs
  4. 10283 is a listed set on this site. I saw a similar mention of the same set on Instagram recently. The info has also come from The given information is: 10283 Space Set? US$199.99? July 2021? The recent expert-style sets (Creator Expert/Ideas/18+) have been: 2010: 10213 Shuttle Adventure (Creator Expert) 2011: 10231 Shuttle Expedition (Creator Expert (Rerelease of 10213) 2014: 21104 Curiosity Rover (IDEAS) 2017: 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V (IDEAS) 2017: 21312 Women of NASA (IDEAS) 2019: 21321 International Space Station (IDEAS) 2019: 10266 NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander (Creator Expert) 2020: 92176 NASA Apollo Saturn V (IDEAS) (Rerelease of 21309) So... 2021: 10283 ????????????????? (Creator Expert / 18 Plus) Discuss below.
  5. I designed a Lego Space Shuttle to scale with the recent Lego Saturn V set. Since I get this question a lot, it is more proportionally correct than the 10231 and 10213 Shuttle, and is also accurately scaled to the Saturn V :) I posted a version of it on here before, but this one has been adjusted and finally submitted it to Lego Ideas.

  6. Been posting this around, and I wanted to share here too. I've been working on my own Lego Space Shuttle design for a while. While I like what Lego has put out, I was never completely satisfied (mostly with the proportions of past models). Then when the incredible Saturn V came out, I knew I HAD to rework the design to the same scale (approx 1:111). This is where I am so far (imgur album).

    Hi, long time lurker!

    I've been lurking this forum for quite some time; I posted a couple of questions long time ago but I always come here to be amazed by the endless creativity of this Lego community. I decided to post a couple of MOC's that are inspired on the shuttles from sets 60080 and 60078. Since I love to collect Space Shuttles of different scales I got these sets as gifts but I was never satisfied by how the shuttles actually looked built. I decided to redesign the shuttles to look a bit better. I started from scratch in the LDD and then got the pieces from bricklink. The big shuttle (SSL) has 302 pieces and the small one (SSS) 200 pieces. Here are the lxf files (I hope these links work): SSL lxf file SSS lxf file The shuttles are ready to be modified to add cargo and other features; I want to add the carrier rockets (the small shuttle will sit atop of a rocket with an adapter for the tail). In this design you can see 2 minifigs in the cockpit arranged using piece 14704 so they can be tilted against each other to make them fit in the space available One of the things that bothered me the most with the 60080 shuttle was the huge gap for the elevon hinges.On my shuttles the hinges are hidden below the wing and fully functional. Adding another section on the cargo bay changed the shape to be closer to the real space shuttle. Of course on the minifig scale the cockpit is minuscule but at least I managed to fit 2 minfigs there. Flickr album Let me know your comments!
  8. With the 30th Anniversary of Space Shuttle Challenger's explosion this year, I've decided to put various sizes of the official Space Shuttle models in a row! From the left to right as follows: 1682 Space Shuttle (Small) 6339 Shuttle Launch Pad (Small) 60080 Spaceport (Medium) 10231 Shuttle Expedition/10213 Shuttle Adventure (Large) 7470 Space Shuttle Discovery (Large) 8480 FOS Light Space Shuttle (Extra Large) Which size do you prefer the most?

    NASA Final Launch - Atlantis

    Hey there. Does any of you have ideas for a set that depicts the final manned space shuttle Atlantis? Lets see your ideas! :D
  10. Hi my name is Jan I was trying to fix the battery box of our space shuttle set. The problem appears to be in the switch part as the circuit is complete from first battery to last. I decided to take the red switch top off. Unfortunately one of the metal strips inside popped out (the one that is not fixed in) and I am not sure how it fitted in. Can anyone please tell me where the metal strip goes and explain how the mechanism inside the switch works. I understand that it reverses the polarity when you press down alternate switches. Thank you
  11. Hi everybody! I'd like to show you my latest mini-moc. It try to represent the Space Shuttle in its most exiting moment: the launch to the space. Hope you like it: Other pictures: Ideas: Any comment or suggestion is welcome! Bye Teazza
  12. Here is a wonderful model of the space shuttle Discovery built by Ed Diment currently for sale on ebay.. Check it out..
