  1. Ever since I got my 21309 Saturn V, I thought it would be cool to have a model of the launch tower to go with it. Well, it may be a long time before I get a chance at building this model for real, but I have completed the digital design! If anyone is interested, an LDD file is available from my bricksafe page: https://www.bricksafe.com/pages/NathanR/real-space/apollo-lut Original first post: Ever since I got my 21309 Saturn V, I thought it would be cool to have a model of the launch tower to go with it. I'm clearly not the only one because a similar model recently reached 10k votes on Lego Ideas - however, I'm impatient and so I decided to start building my own. I've been working in LDD due to a lack of physical bricks, and the first (very rough) sketch model is complete: The Saturn V rocket was launched from the Mobile Launch Platform (MLP, nothing to do with ponies...), a two story structure on which the rocket was constructed and fuelled. It measured 169x135 feet, or 56x46 studs at 1:110 scale, and also carried a 380 ft tall launch umbilical tower (LUT). The tower featured nine arms that provided electricity and other services to various parts of the rocket, and swung away just a fraction of a second before it blasted off. The rocket did not stand on the engine nozzles, but was instead suspended over a single exhaust vent measuring 45x45 feet. This should be 15x15 studs but I've gone with 14x14 studs for ease of building: I'm particularly proud of the design of the hold down arms: These four clamps held the rocket down until all five engines were confirmed to be running at full power, at which point they retracted behind heat-proof shields and allowed the Saturn V to soar skywards. Three additional holddown arms were located around the pad and have yet to be modelled. I'll add details once I have the core structure sorted. The base of the MLP uses 1x4x6 door frames like the version that was on Lego Ideas - an inspired choice which I've temporarily copied here (I'm actively trying to avoid looking at the Ideas model so I don't copy it), but I'm toying with 1x1x5 bricks to represent the support columns instead. I could really use some help and advice with this model though. How do I make it structurally sound? The MLP is a glorified box with a hole in it, but I've never built anything this big before and I'm not sure how to link together the baseplates. I had a few ideas for some internal supports: Do you think these would be strong enough? Should the outer wall be thicker? Should I criss-cross the entire hollow space with brick beams? How do I strike a good balance between strength and low parts count? You can view larger pictures and find the LDD file on bricksafe. If there's interest I'll make instructions available when the model is complete. Any advice or constructive feedback would be much appreciated!!

  3. Hello, after quite some time I have found my way to Eurobricks forum... And even if it's not brand new anymore, in my first post I would still like to introduce my biggest MOC: The Lego Technic Launch Umbilical Tower (LUT) for the Lego Ideas Saturn V with integrated Crawler. Special feature: For the basic variant, you only need the parts from three Technic sets: 42055 BWE, 42082 RTC and 42098 car transporter. With the given parts from these three sets, I tried to match the proportions and add details as good as possible. As I dearly missed some details (e.g. the fuel pipes), I added some upgrades to the LUT. But this means to leave the parts bank of the three mentioned sets, and add some more parts. So far I have upgrades for the fuel pipes, a red crane front, more red parts at the tower, and better looking launch pad surface. These functions are fully motorized: Driving forwards/backwards Steering left/right Elevator in the tower up/down Turn the swingarms into start or supply position Hammerhead crane turn left/right Hammerhead crane rope up/down Manually: Damper arm up/down for the transport position Longitudinal position of the rope on the crane Release tail service masts on the launch pad Video to show the functions: https://youtu.be/pB5tYQBT_tY (please ignore my errors in the rendering, and: YES, it was intended to not use the real names ) Building instructions and more pics are available here: rebrickable And the last link: My insta account to follow me: instagram And now some pics: The basic variant: Upgraded variant: Real picture of my MOC: Comparison for the proportions of the original LUT: Feel free to comment or raise some questions!
  4. Good time, everyone. It is actually a really good time to Iive in. With all this historical events like yesterday's landing happening around us. To celebrate the successful landing of Perseverance, I've created this Lego technic model of Marsian rover. I've tried to recreate as much detail as possible. because one of the goals was not just to make Lego rover, but a good educational model, which can be used to show people how the real one works, what instruments it has on board and which experiments they will help to conduct. So,the video serves the same purpose - to be entertaining and a bit informational. I hope, you'll like it. And if you liked this video, please share it with others, because science popularization is a good thing to do! Also, tell if you want, do you have such ticket to mars, like in the video? See you on the Red Planet! P.S. Music in the video is by soviet group called Zodiac.
  5. This is a MOC I designed during spring 2020 and originally published in the Bricks in Space Facebook group (original post) and on the Bricksin.space 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 Bricksin.space 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
  6. Robust working 1:12 RC model of the 6x6 rocker-bogie mobility system used in Mars rovers Perseverance and Curiosity... Tons of play value. Works well over most neighborhood surfaces and terrains, but sometimes gets stuck in loose sand. What you put on top is up to you. NB: The NASA rovers are 6x6x4 platforms, with 6 wheels, all 6 driven, and the 4 corner wheels steered. At 1:12 scale, steering individual wheels with LEGO motors is out of the question. So this model is necessarily a 6x6x0 platform — but one with reasonably effective skid steering. Several years ago, made a pretty faithful working 1:12 model of Curiosity with more emphasis on visual realism than on mobility system performance. The current model vastly outperforms the old one... Purist alert: SBrick RC receiver, non-LEGO elastics used to suppress wheel spread.
  7. Hello friends. This Moon to MarsTransport System I created for LEGO ideas Moon to Mars competition won grand prize (built in Studio 2.0). I got to visit the NASA team over at Cape Canaveral. They commissioned me to build a 'physical' version of the model which I recently completed. The good news is that the model is arrived at Kennedy Space Centre today to get ready to go on display at the Journey to Mars section when it is renovated later in 2020. Hope some of you get to check it out in real life if you get to visit KSC. Cheers! P.S. I just uploaded this to LEGO IDEAS for a bit of fun (based on The Martian movie Mars Rover and Pathfinder): https://ideas.lego.com/projects/6a27bdb3-c7b9-47cc-aca1-b6237c56dcb9 Steve iuliano.
  8. 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.

  9. The Apollo 11 Saturn V rocket by LEGO Ideas users saabfan and whatsuptoday been confirmed, and is being released as 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V! Full details in this Ideas blog post. 1 meter tall (over 39 inches) (!!!) 1969 pieces (we see what you did there, LEGO! ) USD 119.99 / EURO 119.99 / GPB 109.99 (wow, amazingly inexpensive, all things considered) Available June 1st, 2017 Original Ideas submission image: Announcement video:
  10. Hi all, Inspired by a much larger model of NASA's Lunar Roving Vehicle, I tried to design a micro version to match with the Saturn V model. Here's what I came up with... It' s not perfectly the same scale as the Saturn V, but, at quite exactly 1/100, comes close enough. The whole thing consists of no more than 10 pieces: I'm quite content with how it looks beside the Saturn. You can find the .io file here. Thanks for stopping by! Best regards, Sven
  11. Finally opened and built this awesome set as part of celebrating 50th Anniversary of the moon landing. THE GOOD: Great build! Surprised with the whole brick build moon surface as base. Use of metallic gold colour piece. The amount of details is a lot more than I originally expected. Easter Egg on box art. THE NOT SO GOOD: Don't have any, if I have to nip-pick one thing, the helmet of the minifigures covering the detailed print of the torso. Overall, I love this set and I do think this is a excellent set from LEGO. Will totally recommend to everyone. It's a great build, looks great and I have so many ideas on what to do with the base plate now. A great way to celebrate the 50th Anniversary on the moon landing.
  12. Lego Ideas User eiffleman has provided several instructions for 1:110 scale rockets. Including the NASA Crawler.

  15. Sorry if this isn't the proper sub-forum, I usually don't post much outside of the pirates forum. NASA ER-2/Lockheed U2 NASA ER-2 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr NASA ER-2 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr So I've wanted to build this plane for several months now, and yesterday I finally figured out how to make the fuselage look good and then the rest just fell into place. The plane replicated is the NASA version of the famous Lockheed U2 spy plane, in it's white NASA livery. For more pictures you can go to my flickr page or checkout out my ideas page where I also have a write-up about the model. You can get to both from my signature. I can post pictures of it in it's classic black as well if there is enough interest! Anyways, thanks for looking!

  17. (Review) 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn v By: StangMan302 I recently bought this Lego set #21309, and ever since I got it I have wanted to review it. Some main points. Very strong construction. Great building techniques. Very fun building experience. Excellent scale for viewing/ playing. Box. Great artwork. Shows detail Apollo mission. Breaks down the rocket into stages. Gives some info on the 1969 moon landing. Construction overview Bag 1 This was the construction of the inner fuselage of stage 1. This part is very fragile but the second bag brings the whole thing together to make it super strong. Bags 2-6 Adding covering to stage one. Bag 7. Start of stage 2 construction. Bag 8-10. Stage 2 strengthening. Bag 11. Stage 3 construction. Bag 12. Lunar module and final stage assembly. Final thoughts. Building Experience: 9/10 Play ability: 9/10 Price per piece value: 9/10 Display ability 10/10 Details: 9/10 I would definitely recommend this set to anyone with a passion for space or rockets in general. Props to the designers of this set it is one of the best sets I have ever owned.

  19. Building Nasa Apollo Saturn V 21309 Timelapse Nasa Apollo Saturn V Lego 21309 Timelapse
  20. On May 7, 1961, astronaut Alan Shepard became then first American in space. Flying the Mercury capsule "Freedom 7", he reached an altitude of 187.5km on his 15 minute sub-orbital flight. This particular model is in scale with the recent Lego Ideas 21309 Saturn V/Apollo rocket. I’ve taken the scale from the Apollo command module, assuming 1 stud = 1m. Sadly, at this small size (just 2 studs across), it isn't possible to recreate the United States logo down the side of the rocket, or the distinctive black-and-white stripes in the aft section. If anyone has advice on getting custom prints done, I'd certainly be interested. I was nearly going to use the traditional Lego rocket fin for the tail of the ship, but I decided to try and recreate the black and white patterning on the engine block using some robot arms: I'm a little concerned about my use of a 3.18mm bar in the technic axle holes to hold the base of the rocket together, as it's an unusual technique that (I think) may be damaging to the 2x2 round bricks and plates. That said, it has been used in a few Lego sets so I'm confident it is at least "legal". The model features a display stand, based on the actual launchpad of the Mercury-Redstone: The Mercury-Redstone comes with a separate Mercury capsule on its own display stand - this version includes a 1x1 round plate on the base to represent the retro-rocket pack. This was a small engine that fired to bring Freedom 7 down to Earth on a good trajectory, but unfortunately there isn't the space to include it on the rocket stack. The Mercury capsule was topped by a 4.8m red escape tower, which would propel the capsule up and away from an exploding booster. While never used on manned flights (fortunately), it saw incredibly frequent use during the early testing of rockets! A nanofigure astronaut is included for scale… and yes, Mercury really was that tiny!! This is a digital MOC and hasn't been tested in real life. An older version has appeared on mecabricks, but this one has been updated to use parts that actually exist. Comments and criticism are always appreciated!
  21. 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). Click through to see renders, graphics, and a scale chart:
  22. On February 20th 1960, U.S astronaut John Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth. Piloiting the Mercury capsule “Friendship 7”, launched atop a newly up-rated Atlas rocket, he successfully made three orbits of the Earth. The mission suffered various glitches, including thruster issues and a possible loose heat shield (which could have been fatal), but was essentially a complete success and paved the way for future American space exploration. (Base image from Wikipedia) This particular model is in scale with the recent Lego Ideas 21309 Saturn V/Apollo rocket. I’ve taken the scale from the Apollo command module, assuming 1 stud = 1m. The Atlas rocket was a 1.5 stage rocket. Unlike the Saturn V, which dropped complete assemblies of fuel-tanks and engines, the Atlas rocket jettisoned it’s two outer engines on the way to orbit. This is possible on the model: The Mercury-Atlas comes with a separate Mercury capsule on its own display stand - this version includes a 1x1 round plate on the base to represent the retro-rocket pack. This was used to de-orbit and return Friendship 7 to Earth, but unfortunately there isn't the space to include it on the rocket stack. The Mercury capsule is topped by a 4.8m red escape tower, which would propel the capsule up and away from an exploding booster. While never used on manned flights (fortunately), it saw incredibly frequent use during the Atlas rocket's early testing! A nanofigure astronaut is included for scale… and yes, Mercury really was that tiny!! This is a digital MOC and hasn't been tested in real life. Comments and criticism is always appreciated - I would also welcome advice on how to build a suitable display stand. There’s no way the rocket can stand on its engines, and not many connection points left near the base!

    [LDD] Apollo Lunar Module

    Hi there, here is a creation made with LDD, the Apollo Lunar Module. I imported the creation in mecabrick and then exported it to blender to render it. The creation itself counts 825 bricks and, in my opinion, looks more realistic than the one made by TLC (Lego set 10029) : Rendering test by dorian glacet, sur Flickr
  25. Greetings space fans! To celebrate the successful arrival of the Juno spacecraft into polar orbit around Jupiter I have created some free instructions for a microscale model made from 85 elements. You can see the parts list and download the instructions from Rebrickable. MINI JUNO 02 by Stephen Pakbaz, on Flickr If you like that, I am selling instructions for a much larger and more detailed minifigure-scale version for $9.90. You can go to Rebrickable to check out the parts list for this 887 piece model and purchase instructions. There are more images in my Flickr album including example instruction images. JUNO 01 by Stephen Pakbaz, on Flickr The instructions for both models are packed with additional educational information about the spacecraft, its instruments, and its mission. I'm very excited to learn what this mission will uncover about my favorite planet, Jupiter. On top of that, the actual spacecraft is carrying three passengers in the form of LEGO minifigures made out of Aluminum, so I thought it was only fitting to make and share my LEGO versions of this incredible spacecraft. - Perijove
