Classic Space Airship . A lighter than air transport built to carry explorers around new planets on their 4x4 rovers. . On planets with thick atmospheres, machines with a gas bag were used to float 4x4 rovers to places that needed exploring. Steering was achieved by vectoring the thrust of the two engines and a large tailplane. This tailplane carried the Classic Space yellow & black identification stripes. The extra flight instruments were part of the carrying frame on the airship, as can be seen in this rear view. The machines could land on the wheels of the 4x4 rover or on the metal carrying frame, if it was empty. This action shot shows the airship peeling away having delivered a rover onto the dry-ice plains in the mountains of Gataponia. The airship would fly on autopilot, either waiting for this rover or going to transport a different rover to another place. The extreme cold and strange green atmosphere meant that spacesuits had to worn at all times. The airships were equiped with a pop-up radar for travelling in bad weather. Here we see an airship using its radar in a dense, green fog on Gataponia. Early Classic Space vehicles had no weapons. The first designers were more worried about getting bell-bottoms added to their spacesuits and fitting atuo-reversing cassette decks into their to spaceships so that they could play the latest ABBA albums. After the terrible incidents on Venus the airship fleet was armed with two Javelin missiles, to deal with unexpected problems. Following a request from David Alexander Smith, the archives were searched for more action shots. Here we see a 4x4 rover parachuting into the steep and inaccessible mountain area known as the "Giant's Tooth". Fourth Wall I realise that this creation is covered in studs BUT IT IS LEGO! I worked out how to build the airship after staring at DeTomaso Pantera's "Kaboom" and LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist's planets for a while. Here's where I got the mountains of Gataponia from. Following Starscream Soundwave's comments, here's a photo of the airship hanging from a ceiling with the rover parachuting down.
