CSPM II: Rocket Explorer
My entry for the classic space pocket money contest 2.
About this creation
Here is a link to the group. My main model can drop off an exploration rover.

























































Proof of the pieces used. I hope you like my model! The alternate models don't do anything, because I figured that the ones on the back of the boxes didn't either. I really enjoyed making something from the classic space era, and changing the colors was a fun idea. Thanks for looking!

A tidy little ship, with a hidden drop rover J. The colours work pretty well too. 7 These designs resonate with the actually rear of packet designs. The second especially. 7 The drop rover function will of course open doors to the imagination. Neat swooshing fun to be had too. 8 A very typical and successfully realized CS concept build. 8

The first photo shows a neat little spaceship. Nice to see a fully enclosed cockpit built from so few parts. I like how the colours are split fore and aft, rather then the usual top to bottom. Then the surprise is unleashed: there's a buggy inside! A neat bit of design. 9 I like the second of the alternate builds the best. It's basic, open cockpit reminds me of CS sets. The first alternative is very similar to the main build but I think that it doesn't look quite as good. It would have been great to see more variety here. Perhaps a big radar rover or a base? 6 A sturdy build, using conventional, studs up techniques. The whole set up looks very swooshable and the light buggy clips in neatly and securely. It's good that the canopy hinges open. This both facilitates play and clipping in the buggy. (Why do so many current Lego sets have lift-off canopies?). Lots of play possibilities with the spaceman driving around, getting stuck and then calling in the spaceship to lift him away. 7 This is so very CS. Perhaps a bit impractical in the real world but that never stopped the spacemen of the 1980s! 9 Total 31

Detaching pilot's seat/buggy is a great Classic Space-y play feature. Love that green canopy too!

The wedge shaping makes for cute, compact, and curious designs! :)

The dropship function is very cool and very clever. The ship is like a "little brother" of the Cosmic Cruiser :-)). Great job! Good luck in the contest! :-))

Always liked fully closing cockpits and the fact it doubles as buggy park too is great.

The rover-dropping of the main model is my favorite part.

I have to disagree, as alternate models always fueled my imagination.

While its a little on the small side, its very classic space. I love the cockpit being a rover :D

We must have been thinking alike, I also have a yellow and gray combo spaceship/rover.

This is defiantly swooshable! I really like the wing shape. I love the seat in the cockpit detaches for a mini rover, genius! Excellent entry!

Quoting Gerfy Legorider That's the dinkiest modular explorer I've ever seen. No frills, greebling or any elaborate doodads.
It has to be small. No more than 100 pecies.
