This ship is the next size up from my Galaxy Commander. But I used the Explorer as a common reference point. It's sort of patterned after the NASA Space Shuttle but with a Classic Space theme.
About this creation
I tried to be consistent with 1979. I'm still learning how to upload photos. They are all out of my preferred order.

Hatch to cargo bay and ladder to cargo bay operator.

Engine detail

Loading the Carrier

Plenty of room for more

Lighting is tricky too

Satellite about to launch

Side view

Another close up

Cargo bay with arm extended. It pulls in satellites. The arm is guided by the operator using a camera (binocular piece) mounted on the arm itself.

Cockpit

Laser cannons. There's two here to indicate that it is twice as powerful as my Twin Cannon Heavy Assault Fighter. The Carrier can take on the big bad guys if it needs to.

Cargo ramp comparison

Mounted missile/rocket

Love it and the comparisons to the smaller craft. The replicating of the steering nozzles on the larger ship is great. Really bold design for the Galaxy Carrier. Great job!

I'm in the process of designing mine. This is a wonderful point of reference. Good job! Granted I don't have near the pieces you do, I'm still going to try.

Thanks for your comments. I always wondered if the rockets on the classic stuff was supposed to be rockets or missiles. I guess Lego meant for them to be booster rockets...
Quoting Parrington Levens Love the cockpit windows and the array of rocket boosters along the side of this bus like monster. And the way you can just throw in a Galaxy explorer for size comparison rocks. Your discipline in not over finessing these is what makes them look so late 70's. Truly 'Nostalgic' stuff. So this settles it. My next MOC is going to be a classic one. Thanks for the inspiration, and keep them coming.

Thank you very much for your comments. It's tough because I want to stay true to 79 but that means it has to stay deceptively simple...
Quoting Ultramarine Skiver Wow, this is exceptional! I can't think of anything to improve! Except maybe the bridge, more computers & seats. But otherwise, well done!
