Far out on the solitary rock known as our moon, outpost 7 and her intrepid researchers work tirelessly in their low-gravity genetic labs to solve Earth's food shortage problems. With the world's population tipping a hefty 10 billion, and with increasing urbanisation, agriculture has become somewhat neglected on Earth despite it's role being many notches more important now.

Like her sister facility, Moon Base Delta, Lunar Outpost 7 sports many similar technologies but has incorporated vast improvements learnt from mistakes made in Moon Base Delta.
Clearly apparent is the addition of an integrated landing pad into the main superstructure of the facility, with a mini air-traffic control booth.
Seen from the rear, the airlock and elevator to the landing pad is clearly apparent.
Well, I thought a "H" on a circular landing pad looks more iconic...besides, ahem...it could also stand for "Hover jet" :)
Also, I guess if this module were to be deployed on other planets with partial gravity, then helicopters could be in use.
I've just watched Oblivion on a flight and your Lunar Outpost reminds me a lot of the tower that Tom Cruise lives in, with its landing pad and living quarters. I can just imagine your spaceman going out on missions and then coming home to relax in the greenhouses.
Wow, very nice build. This looks more like a realistic version, who says people on the moon have to have ridiculously shaped glass domes?
the landing pad is also a nice touch. would have loved to see another picture or 2 of the vehicle. 5/5 -omega
