About this creation

Here ya go, Phipson
Dark Side of the Moon
There was a time when "energy" was a dirty word.
When turning on your lights was a hard choice.
Cities in brownout, food shortages, cars burning fuel to run.


But that was the past.

Where are we now?
How do we make the world so much better? Make deserts bloom?

Right now, we are the largest producer of fusion energy in the world.
The energy of the sun, trapped in rock, harvested by machine from the far side of the moon.
Today, we deliver enough clean-burning helium-3 to supply the energy needs of nearly 70% of the planet.


Who would have thought that all
energy we ever needed is right above our heads?


The power of the moon...

The power of our future.

~Quoted from the movie Moon

Anyway, if you didn't guess by the massive quote up there, I went and built a rover from the movie. Handy for getting around to the harvesters up there. My original plan was to do something from Iron Sky, but I didn't like the way my saucer was turning out.

Here's a decent overview of the whole thing. Changed slightly from the film to suit my tastes.


A front end that any Tonka truck would be proud of.


In the movie I noticed how inconvenient these things are to get in to, even in low gravity. I gave it a ladder.


In a pinch you could probably bound up the wheel though.

Thanks for watching.

This is a really cool build. I love a vehicle with heavy weaponry, but when you see a build like this that could hold endless weaponry, but is has none, it makes a profound statement, especially in space builds. This vehicle looks perfect for surface explorations. So subtle, yet effective, greebling. Love the wheels especially.

Fantastic work. I wish I could 'fave' the opening pic.~H

The subtlety of the orange on the light grey is really nice, and some of your details here such as the cargo container, ladder, and features on the back are great! The front also has some cool features.

The vehicle looks similar to the one from the movie "Moon." This looks great. I would have like a shot of the lanscrap you used though, because I like some of the things you used, but there isn't a good close-up to show the details.
