NCS Long Range Comm Outpost
About this creation



Nostalgia Factory Outpost challenge. Although not technically a self-contained outpost, Long Range comms towers just scrape into outpost criteria.

LRCs had to be placed away from the main moonbase to avoid interference from the base's reactor. This segregation also doubles as a safety precaution; any explosions at the moonbase would not endanger the LRCs which could then be used to call for help.

Classic Spacemen reported an eerie feeling when using the machines...like they were watching them...

Fun fact: I only have three trans yellow hoses, the fourth is a virtual one :)

Can't add anything what wasn't told before. I fits the classic space well, simple but great.

Nice! It really has an ominous feel to it. The small weak spaceman standing in front of a huge machine that is staring him down. Nice use of the ball by the way.

The teaser was great, but the final product is even more cool ! It looks like some MOCs in 80's idea books, but revisited by your great style. Love the idea of the almost 'living' machine. It must be a bit frightening for our poor spaceman, to stand alone in the cold of a space landscape, with this strange "technical statue" watching him... Excellent, Mister Shan !

It's like a spacey 'Eye of Sauran'; Classic Space meets Lord Of The Rings. You may have stumbled upon a new amalgam; you could call it Spobbit or something.LOL Great stuff!~H

How interesting. I absolutley love that trans yellow platform with the trans hoses as well, and the trans step, which I'm sure is 4 1x2's, looks great! I also love the original shot you took. Really cool classic space/neo fusion here, top stuff!
