Mobile Research Trailer
This is my entry for the Pocket Money Classic Space contest; it was built with 69 pieces. The Mobile Research Trailer consists of a standard two-man rover attached to a small, satellite-covered trailer. Since building a full-size trailer would have been more expensive (and placed the piece count out of the contest rules), a smaller trailer was designed to fit the RT-7M, a robot built specifically for the Research Trailer. The vehicle was also designed to, in an emergency, be rebuilt into two other vehicles.
About this creation

Just to be clear, the baseplate is not part of the set; its just part of my background.

The long wheels base of the buggy and the overhang of the trailer would make this a tricky setup to travel across the lunar surface with. The big doors and roof on the trailer do make it very easy for the spacemen to work in the control room. 6 I love the wheels used as engines on the first alternate build. The space-scooter looks neat, especially with the aerial on the hinge. Great to see more of the parts being used up in the control room. I like the mudguard engines on the second alternative build, though it does look a bit square for a flying machine. 7 Loads of play options here. Nice to see a solid coupling for the trailer. It’s great that you’ve managed to get two min-figs in to increase the playability, plus the little robot. I like the control room and the classic CS radar dish. The build looks solid and child proof too. 8 This MOC has echoes of one of David and mine favourite CS sets, the Mobile Tracking Station. I like how you’ve pushed it along a bit, with the robot and the opening roof. The blue trailer doesn’t look “right” to me, as big chunks of blue were only seen on spacecraft. 7 Total score 28

Design: A nicely designed, two-part vehicle. The classic design feature of a mobile lab works for me; not sure whether the height of the lab so it only fits a squat bot really works. 7 Piece Selection: The alternatives all feel like the type of things you would find on the back of a packet. Although none are quite as well realised as the main model. 7 Playability: Lots of playability. The MOC looks stable and the two mini-figs, bot and detachable lab offers up many adventure opportunities. 8.5 CS Factor: This is CS as it was meant to be. The style is spot on. 8

Quoting Starscream Soundwave Very cool. The photos are a little fuzzy, but the set looks brilliant, and I really like the alternatives too.
Yes, the pics aren't very good; I'm going to use a different camera next time. This one only had 4 megapixels.

hehe this is cool! The bot is cute. I like the simple expension of the buggy to a two-seat-version. This makes this moc very authentic. Good luck with the judges.
