My entry for the CSPocket Money Contest. I take you back to the roots of Classic Space (and my youth).
About this creation
As many say, yes it is a fantastic contest. Original and affordable concept.
THANK YOU David & David!!
For me, it was a way to come back 30 years ago: Like Parrington's entry, I wanted to build from the very beginning something in that good old (odd?) famous Light Grey.
Difficult thing as I had only less than 200 parts left. I use them for adventurers sets.
A link to the CSPM Contest


Main build: the Transmitter with its pilot.





I wish I still had one of these vintage CS minifigs. The oldest ones I've got were released in 1987.


That is how the transmitter works: It is a relay between ground stations and others. A kind of satellite with pilot.


Heading towards new adventures...



Shazam!!
60 parts including minifig's parts.



Build n°2: Transmission station and its scoot-air.
I never took so few time to build something: 20 minutes! Done!


The idea of the scoot-air has already been used by JWG 258 excellent M-Tron Entry
Believe me or not but I think we built at the same time, I'm just slow for taking pictures (my daughter'camera)...
I could have been more original but I love that combination with little thrusters and the chair.


A little gift...
On the background pic, there's a little note writen bottom left: 1983...
You cannot imagine all the pain I had to find it out in my parents'attic!



Shazam!!



Build n°3: Flying saucer-ship and its discovery robot.




You can notice how Light Grey bases "kind of" faded with light, dust and time. Thirty years passed away... -sigh-


A pleasure this contest, thanks for watching!
That's all, folks!!

The ship is the first cream. The whole set could truly be an original. Except for the astronaut;)

Quoting Kevin Yoo I always liked satellite dishes, and this is convincing enough to look like a 1980s Classic Space set! 10/10.
Thanks for stopping by!!

Quoting Parrington Levens Sorry I'm late to see this one. Pure classic mate, great entry, and I loevd the alternatives, and also that you used a cs template. Wish I had some of those. Very well done on reproducing that cs feel here )
Better late than never said the wise man. Thank you very much, Parrington!! Just for taking time to stop by and comment. Most appreciated!!

I like the way that this space scooter looks very flyable but is also covered in sensors and radar dishes for exploring space and searching for “things”. 9 I like how you built the trans-red bits into the body of the main build, and included the different stud angles. Nice to see a Fabuland wrench in there too! The two alternatives have a very look to the main build, which I think is great. I like the strange tower in the first alternative. The Flying Saucer Ship looks great fun and very swooshable. 9 Perhaps the weakest part of this excellent entry is that there aren’t any moving bits to play with. The design looks solid & swooshable, plus the different sensors can detect all sorts of stuff and start off imaginative stories. I just wish that there was something to adjust and fiddle with! 6 Just the sort of thing that Lego would have had in the range of CS sets, along with the Tracking Station and Seismograph. I like how you’ve blend the CS studs on top look with the wings. 8 Total score 32

Design: A great rendition of a CS spaceship. The asymmetry on the nose adds a little bit of extra interest. I also like the side mounted radar dishes. 8 Piece Selection: The alternatives are both different and interesting. The bat bot is the stand out. 7 Playability: Good for swooshiing, and looks pretty cool, but no additional play functions means you drop a point or two. 7 CS Factor: Perfect capture of the CS look. Would have made a solid set back in the day. 8

If you told me this was an official set I would believe you. Also, the parts selection is great, I can come up with another alternate build by looking at your parts layout pics.

Cool build .... And that color issue .. lol .. Thats what i was thinking the exact same moment i clicked your post ... Since im building on some classic space myself these minutes ... And the diffrence in color from the old baseplates / bricks compared to our new ones ... Its a time capsule ... Well, back to what its all about ... I like your alternates a lot also ... Good luck with the competition. :)
