NASA 1004 LMRHc-11
NASA model 1004 ("Light Medium Range Hauler" version with remote-controlled robotic arm ("Crane")). Max. speed 0.11 speed of light (11% lightspeed)
About this creation


Some of the first "space trucks" developped for orbital use at "homeworld" planets (The moon, Mars and teh asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter)
The vehicle can land on the moon surface, and theoretically also on Mars -although that would be stressing teh superstructure to its maximum. It is especially suited for running ore between the asteroid belt and homeworld orbital factories.


Loading the containers.

The astronauts shown in the photo are there to get an idea about the size of the vehicle.
It is 50.4m long.
It needs 2 persons to operate it, but for longer voyages it can sustain up to 5 persons for 400 days.


Fully loaded.

Cabin with life-support systems. Artificial gravity for the crew. The tube connecting to- and the engine control room itself has no gravity control.

"We brake for NOBODY!"

Thanks to strong motors and high speed this type of vessel have become popular for runnign contraband merchandise and pirateering.
NASA commercialzes this model completly without weapons of any kind, so as to not encure abuse. -But a black market for third-hand add-on components has developped, as the vehicle is easily modified.
NASA themselves only offers a small gatling gun. -Indispensable for operating in the asteroid belt. The model on the photos is not equipped with the gatling, and is totally without arms.

***

The model is 63cm long and thus 1:80 scale. I admit that it looks too much like an Eagle (1999), although equal amounts of inspiration was initially gotten from the Valley Forge.
The brick with the "Transport" text is almost as old as myself ;-)
Also some rubber-tires from classic Lego was used on the main engines...

Very creative and unique. The cargo modules are very cool and the detailing on the front and back parts of the ship is great.

This looks so realistic, it could easily be an official model....

I think this is very good. It looks pretty realistic and well thought-out. And it somehow reminds me of a more realistical version of my 'USS Lydia - container/freighter' ;)

This is EXACTLY the direction spacecraft will probably follow; container ships consisting mostly of engines, crew module and framework! You've got it down to a tee. I've been building some to post for Nova Starr, but they don't look nearly as nice. (I'm going for the ugly/clunky look!) I like the size, too. It's very suited for slogging round the Belt. Those containers are very good too.
