Neo-Classic Space Long Range Explorer Shuttle
I decided to keep this one short and sweet. Enjoy!
About this creation

Designed for travelling amongst remote planets, moons and asteroids, the primary mission of this one man ship is to conduct orbital mineral surveys with its belly mounted radar dish. The pilot would then guide deep space mining teams to extract any valuable ore deposits.





She packs dual lasers cannons purely for “defensive” purposes which are tied to a state of the art targeting system. Posessing such equipment while mounting a pair of massive thrusters for high speed maneuvers on such a small craft have some critics questioning whether this design may have been secretly built for military applications, but that would be ridiculous, riiiiiiiiight?











In any event the versatility of this ship guarantees its place in space exploration for years to come.


4th Wall: My original intention was to enter this in the “My Classic Space Pocket Money Contest.” However after realizing my build weighed in over 140 bricks (most of which are hidden internally holding this thing together) I tried stripping it down to make the cut. Unfortunately it looked so cheesy that I simply decided to keep as it is even though it no longer qualified for the contest. Easy come, easy go.

Also, I need to give credit to Jon B. because I tried to use some of his control panel and seat designs here. Naturally, his are still way better but these modified versions work pretty well in this case.

Great use if the smooth, round, big pieces to create this ship. I think it looks best from the side and the title photo doesn't do it justice. A fun ship, which looks solid and swooshable too.

Awesome, I'm a big CS fan as well, and this is beautifully reminiscent of the Exploriens theme. I really like the seat in the cockpit, excellent detail! Also, the Classic space pocket money contest II is on, you have until 11th january to make something if you want and compete this year!

Now that has 'swoosh me' written all over it - gorgeous curved lines you're created there. The enigines protrude perfectly from that cowling, it's a cracker mate!

Quoting Parrington Levens Hehe, that's funny about the cs entry brick over load. So easy to do. A neat ship regardless, and good to see you have come by some cs bits!
Thanks friend although thosed CS bits have been in my pile since the 80's. The original gold paint of the planet wore away long ago and only the white base coat remained. In fact the rest of my CS men lost the symbol completely so now those parts are blank slates!

Thanks everyone for the feedback! I've been trying to add this for several days now and today was the first time it finally uploaded most of the pics so I went fot it. Hopefully every thing else around here will be back up to speed soon.

So smooth. Perhaps the David's next competition should be a classic space birthday present for a minor family member contest and install a 150 piece limit. Then you could enter this!

Cute. Very swooshable. I agree with Barto. You got the big clunky parts into a sweet, integrated whole.
